    Ok, I am feeling pretty bummed this morning. I candled the egg and see no movement in any of them.[​IMG] Can anyone tell me what I should see on Day 25? They look very solid - large air sacks. Not much more than that, other than they are much lighter than when laid. I had seen movement in them around day 18, now nothing. Do you think I lost them> [​IMG]

    Thanks in advance for any info or advice!

    Maybe you are just off on your dates. in the last few days, you will not see movement. You should see the air cell and the rest should be dark as the chicken takes up the whole egg.

    Oh I want to cry! I SOO hope that you are right and that is what is going on!!! Thank you for the encouragement!

    So, another question, I have let Tati keep the rest of her eggs. She now has 5 in the nest but is on again off again setting them. We are going to get down to 29 degrees for the next two nights. Should I take them from her and incubate them? Some of them have to be 10 days old because she only lays every other day. [​IMG]
