I really am trying to do everything right. I keep the temp stable, I add the water every 3 days, or as it evaporates and is needed, and I turn them gently 2 to 3 times each day, but when I went to candle them tonight I only saw one that for sure looks like it has veins starting. A few of them were still completely clear. I am going to wait until day 13 and try to candle them quickly and see if I have anything. At this point though it isn't looking so good. This is my first time using an incubator. Not sure if I'm doing something wrong or not. Whoever reads this, send some good hatching vibes my way, please! I could use them!

I had a similar problem on Saturday (my day 7) when I candled. I had one Polish egg that definately had veins and small movements. Some of my darker eggs I couldn't see much but the air sacs were bigger. But I'm pretty much waiting it out, hopefully its just my untrained eye missing something. I wish you the best of luck, keep your hopes up!!!
