    Oh, yeah. That's a definite yes. Even my 12-year-old (who has a few years's experience in the trade) said "Yeah" as soon as he saw it. ;) Congrats.

    Ya but the other thread was of just the candled egg, then I put the picture of yolk. Would you put the eggs in along with the six already in there as they are laid or would you collect them for like a week and then put all the new ones together???

    Collect all the eggs you're going to set, and then set them together. Otherwise you'll have eggs hatching on separate days, which wreaks havoc and causes major problems for the later eggs. I strongly recommend reading up on the forums about incubating & hatching. There are some great stickies, and they'll save you a lot of heartache on your first batch. Good luck!
