    the eggs seem to be closer together this morning so maybe some movement overnight but none that i can see just did a very quick candle and all in good
    i just pick the egg up in the same position it in in the bator and stuck the light on so i didnt really move the egg but still a little movement [​IMG] fingers crossed

    Nope i didnt candle.I want to be surprised (lol).
    I will give them till wednesday,2 more days.
    I am pretty sure because well,the hen threw one out of the nest and i shaked it a little bit and it looked like the dead ones you know?The ones that move from side to side because they are DEAD.
    I dont know they still have 10% from me.
    Plus I dont really care about getting it.I am doing for the sake of it.But I have to admit i really want some but even if they dont hatch I am not going to kill myself...

    I'm on day 23 of my first hatch using a still-air, so I'm no expert, but... I found that when I added warm water to control humidity, even though the temp jumped, that's when I would start to see new pips. Maybe give it a try? [​IMG] Best of luck!
