    How do I know if my eggs are gonna hatch? It's day 6 tomorrow and I have a feeling none of them are gonna hatch. Chicken eggs by the way. Do you need a special lighted flash light? I don't see anything....:\\

    I couldnt see anything when i candled either. This is my first hatch so I too feel that none will hatch. Im at day 16. Ive got 97 eggs half of which i had mailed to me. I knocked on out of the bator today and there where chick parts in there. Dont be nervous and dont watch them. Let the incubator do the work.

    Well I guess the main thing I'm worried about is its a home-made incubator my dad built. lol

    What is your temp? Low temp means Slow development time
