    Alright, so I'm at day 20 of incubation, and I haven't seen any movement or pipping, heard anything either :s

    Should I be concerned? I stuck them in lockdown a couple days ago and it's KILLING ME, i wanna candle them but I'm told I'm not allowed to open up the bator :(

    Before I stuck them in lockdown they were kicking about really well when I candled them, so I don't know if I should be concerned cause they seemed pretty energetic :s

    the guy told me they were white orpinton, and it's my first time incubating :D

    it's overwhelmingly exciting and yet at the same time, incredibly stressful lol

    I've got 25 eggs in the bator and I only noticed 4 or 5 to not be fertile when I initially candled them, but at this juncture I'll be happy if half hatch
