Ok so this is my first batch of hatching eggs..

I have 4 eggs that are on day 14 and
14 eggs on day 10.. all are Silkies

I haven't recently candled any yet.. I did last week, kind of nervous to do it!
it was still little hard to tell.

I took a flash light to some this morning seen a few Im very hopeful of
will do them all later tonight.. and mark them, and look more closely at them..

question do I Candle them from the air pocket or bottom or top.. this is all so confusing and new to me.. Afraid of hurting them..

any pointers would be great..

ok so I did candle them.. however one egg has nothing in it..

the rest have something in them as they are all dark.. the dark ones hoping they are the chicks?? I just cant see anything in them and definitely cant see into them only the air pocket

I can only see spider (bloodlines) in a few (maybe 3-4) of the 14 (10 days) seen with movement.. Hope they are all ok.

I know some are known to hatch around day 16-18 days..
should I put them in separate incubator on Sunday..
