    My incubator set up--I live in a super drafty old house you can literally feel a breeze on your feet. Keeping temp steady is a constant battle. I'm trying wrapping it in towels this time to block cold air

    I tossed them - they were obvious compared to the ones with veining and some that I could see movement in. I fear the "exploding" egg [​IMG]

    Lol. I fear that too. My five whole foods are clear but I only tossed three. I kept the other two in there because I ran out of time. Next time I open the incubator in a couple of days I will do a quick candle and toss those two if they are still clear.

    They were Maran mixes both splash. One white and one black. Both really good boys but I'm only keeping my very lovable and handsome EE.

    Today is day 7 and I candled all 24 eggs. All 12 brown eggs are showing a lot of veins. The 12 Ameraucana eggs have good looking air cells but the eggs are too dark to see veins. No clears. I traced the air cells on all 24 and will candle again on day 15.

    Today is day six and I decided to go ahead and candle the eggs. Of 29 eggs, 20 are fertile for sure. It's hard to tell with the Marans and Olive-Eggers since they're so dark, but we saw really good veining on the Ameraucanas. My seven-year-old is so excited! We will candle again on day 10… Hope everybody else's incubation and hatching is going well!
