    I say it depends on how bright your light is and how dark the room was when you candled. I did a air cell check yesterday at day 21 and some I could see movement and some I didn't. It also could have been that they were resting at the moment. Have faith

    Oh yes it's a pain in the butt! It wasn't so bad just the first dozen but with the second batch it's a pain, after my first dozen hatch on the 3rd I'm going to buy the turner and put in there and add move the others over there. I'm a stay at home mom, so I'm usually home through the day but it's still a pain and I hate to have the box open that long!
