    I purchased an incubator in October and had my name placed on Cyn's list, but I just couldn't control myself. I bought a dozen eggs on eggbid. All survived shipment too. Today is day 1. (These are my practice eggs before I get the beautiful Suede & Scout chickletts)

    Thanks for posting this, Heidi! [​IMG]

    Just got our Hova-Bator (forced air) last weekend and I've had it running ever since to get it fine tuned. Broke down and added 3 eggs today as a test run. Your picture helped me with my waterwiggler/thermometer placement!

    I hope this does not sound dumb but what is a water wiggler? I have 33 eggs in incubator and we just finished day 10?

    Here's candling at day 6. There is only 1 egg that I can see anything because of the darkness of the egg shell - so far I have 11 left - egg 12 was discarded because of a large crack. This one you can definitely see the baby.

    This one is alittle closer - if you look really hard you can see it's eye. In person it was very clear.

    That's great, Heidi! Hope they all hatch with no trouble.

    Luck to you! I'm gonna have to keep you in mind: Penedesencas are supposed to be really heat-resistant and lay beautiful eggs, but flighty as all get out. If you have good results with your hatch and your pullets (positive thoughts!) aren't crazy, I might have to draw on you for info. ^_^
