    It's so neat thinking that a baby chick goes from nothing to something in 21 days.

    Man, those Marans and Olives have some dark shells. I use multiple small flashlites (LED) and they are still dark.

    I love whe you can see their hearts pumping and them moving now around. That is part of the reason I have such a hard time not candling everyday.

    I just bought the same incubator and will be putting eggs in on Thursday. This is my first attempt. Any advise working with the Magicfly?? The instructions are vague and odd to say the least! Lol I also bought a candler and a humidity thermometer. I am wondering if I just put it inside with the eggs??

    Hope your hatch is going as planned!

    Welcome aboard! I don't have advice on the Magicfly but I do have advice on your humidity /temperature (hygrometer) : calibrate both and write down how off they are so you can adequately monitor your temps. The calibration tests are simple but you need to do the salt one for six hours. I don't know if the Magicfly has a big enough vent, but on my incubator I stick one of my hygrometer probes through one of the vents. I have a second hygrometer sitting on the inside (I don't trust just one).
