    Well today is day seven in my incubation of 5 eggs. I use just a regular GQF styrofoam incubator and hand turn the eggs several times every day. I candled all six eggs about an hour ago and the first egg had veins, then the next and the next until I had candled all six eggs and saw veins in all of them! One *might* have a blood ring but it is kind of faint so I made a note about that egg and will keep an eye out for it. The oldest egg is from April 30th and the newest is from May 15th. I am really excited about possibly being able to hatch out more than one this year! I might be getting better at using the incubator too...I don't know... I told a few of my friends if I hatch some out I will let them name one and claim it.

    Does anyone else have some eggs that are doing well so far?

    [​IMG] Day 5 for me. Two peacock eggs & 15 guinea eggs in my Brinsea. Had to add a little bit of water to it this morning but otherwise, rocking along. I also am hand turning the pea eggs 3x day.

    MinxFox, I hope all your eggs continue to develop and hatch. This year I am borrowing a GQF Styrofoam Incubator from my school and it seems to be working great. I just had 9 out of 10 eggs hatch, a few Cameo, some IB, an IB split to white, and a white. I have 15 more eggs to hatch!
    Good Luck everybody with your hatches.

    Thanks good luck to all of you too!

    I was thinking recently that I am not sure what I will be getting from these eggs...I will probably get some split to pied or split to whites, India blues split to blackshoulder, and who knows I might even get a white...I don't know what these eggs could be. I hope they all continue to do well. Yesterday I candled them again and they are still looking good.

    Congrats on the progress of the eggs. I have eggs in the incubator and under a few broody hens. All I can do is cross my fingers and wish for the best. :/

    Yep that is all we can do now... I can forsee me candling them a bunch...XD Last year I candled Peep's egg so much because I loved watching how much he was growing.
