    Some are all the way dark and have the air bubble visible, when will they hatch? I have a TON of mixed date eggs so i'm not sure how long after the black egg they'll hatch. Also, when eggs are half black and half white-ish, are they bad?

    Oh dear. When did you set them? All of them. Dates please.

    Ohh, theres a ton of dates. I know its 21 days after you have set them. But, there are also ones that don't have a date. I know the dating is important but i'm new to this. I've hatched off 15 already.

    Quote:Honestly in my two years of hatching I only do a staggered hatch with two dates, simply because the ones still cooking need to be turned. If you are going to have to be in lockdown constantly you can't turn.
