    I just candled 24 mille fleur bantam cochin eggs at day 14. All seem to be at the day 14 stage, except three they seem to be at about day 11-12. When I candled them I could see the embryos moving and was wondering if they will be ok. Is there something I should do like move them to a different space in the incubator? Or just wait and see?

    There may be a cool area in your incubator. I just hatched some millies and they hatched a day early, so I wouldn't worry about it [​IMG]
