    I have 30 coturnix eggs I set on the 17 of March in a Brinsea Octogan 20. My temp has been steady humidity average about 43%. These were shipped eggs. I finally candled for the first time today have about 15 that glow should I toss them or just wait until hatch time. The rest I can see an air cell. Thanks

    If they glow, they are not going to hatch. I would toss them. The others, seeing the aircell is a good sign [​IMG]

    Thanks, That's what I thought. Looking forward to ordering eggs from you in the future. Were these just not fertile or did I do something wrong?
