    Can you candle and take a guess? Silkiechicken has a great candling page... I just forgot what day I put my eggs in and looked at it,compared it to what I saw when I candled and figured out within a day...so now I know they are about 3 going into 4 days [​IMG]

    I did that a few times...now I take a pencil and write the date I set them on the egg...that way when I have staggered batches I don't miss any that need to get pulled [​IMG]
