    Got a quick candle in tonight. 11/13 show definite development, 2 possible clears, but no ring, so I left them in.

    My flashlight is weak, and I used my phone camera, but here is one.

    Realized I didn't hit reply last night on that post.

    I guess this is day 7. Only difference is above post. Now I know Bino the rooster is doing his job.

    Ambient temperature: 58-71°F

    Day 8 and 9:
    Didn't manage to post yesterday, or check temperatures so...

    No change. Didn't get water in yesterday, but added some today.

    Ambient temperature: 59-79°F over the two days.

    Ambient air temp: 64-79°F.

    I have a wee feral chickens on my property that escaped last year. One decided the goat pen was a good place to lay her eggs.
