    I'm on day 16 and some of the eggs you can actually see moving. Is this normal? Thanks.

    Quote:No, that's not too early! [​IMG] They should be wiggling by day 14 so it's normal.
    I'm on the same day as you! [​IMG] When are yours expected to hatch? Mine are expected this weekend or early next week! [​IMG]
    I wish both of us good luck and great hatches! [​IMG]

    I've never noticed mine wiggle that early but then again I put them in egg cartons. Sometimes I swear I see one move but blame it on poor eyesight!!!

    Hope all goes well and good luck to you both! Can't wait to see pics!!!

    Do you have better luck putting the eggs in cartons (last three days) than just laying them out on the wire?

    Mine should be hatching this weekend. My temp has been 100-101 consistently with humidity 40-45% LG Still Air bator. Mine aren't in a carton, just laying on the screen. Stop turning on day 18 correct?

    Quote:I do but I also hatch alot of eggs at one time (30+) so the cartons work perfectly for me. My eggs are on a turner until day 18 when they go in the cartons.
