    Okay so I already asked several questions in the quail section... But of course I have MORE... First three eggs laid on 06-07-11 about 2pm within 5minutes altogether. Then the other 3 were laid through to the 11th. Okay enough statements.. How the heck do you candle a button egg!? I tried and it was too dark to see! I really want to know if they are developing.. Also, since they were laid on different days, and stupid me I forgot to mark them as 1,2,3,4,5,6 etc.. Idk which ones to stop turning on day 14....[​IMG]
    Will I end up killing them if I keep turning them after day 14? Will they start peeping or moving to let me know to leave whichever ones alone? I am supposed to keep the bator closed last few days of incubation, they are laid diff days so I can't or others will die... If you cannot tell I am very nervous, and this is my first hatch.. I've done nothing but run to the room and check the temperature and humidity constantly! Anything else I might have forgotten to ask about hatching, or what not please just let me know. I am here to learn!
