I have been extremely curious about the process of incubation and wanted to try it for myself. I have chosen the Janoel 12 incubator, bought off of Ebay. Assembly was straightforward, and I ran it for two days before adding the eggs. I also inserted an additional temperature/humidity monitor inside for two reasons: 1. The Janoel 12 does not include a humidity monitor and 2. I wanted a second temperature reading to compare. The eggs were shipped to me and sat pointy-side down for 24 hours, at room temperature, until today... And today, I placed them into the incubator! I marked each side with an X and the other with an O, just to be sure that the egg turner works and also for own reference (as I will also be trying to turn them by hand as well). Temperature is at 99.5 degrees. Incubator includes a fan and air vent. Humidity is at 45%. I am extremely nervous and excited. I purposely placed the incubator in a quiet room that's a bit out of the way so that I *hopefully* won't continue to obsessively check it. One concern that I already have is the darkness of the eggs when I candle. As a first-timer, I really want to make sure I understand what I am seeing and do it correctly. Is there a trick to candling black copper maran eggs? Or even hatching them? Any tips, tricks, etc... would be greatly appreciated.
