    So we're on our first hatch and we're using a homemade incubator. This is Day 3 I believe. They went in on 3/18 at 4 PM.. I'm nervous so I quickly (as smoothly as possible) candled two eggs as best As I could. Of Course Im nervous but excited. Lol. [​IMG][/IMG]

    Three days is a little early to be seeing anything. Give it another two or three days and then check again :)

    However, I do think I see a blood island in the second egg. That would mean life.

    I know it's hard to see in the pictures but you can see circles in each egg with the red veins around and in it.. I just didn't want to keep it out any longer than I had it.

    That would definitely mean they're developing then :)

    That's awesome! I'm more excited than the kids. Lol. I'm not going to attempt to candle again until Day 7. I don't want to ruin it for everyone.
