    ok, so I just candled like 4 of my bantams 9 and in the ones that i assume have life, they look like only half of the egg is occupied. Is this normal?

    Pictures of what a GOOD week old egg[after being in the bator or under the hen] looks like are GREATLY appreciated.

    What if the hen isn't turning them? I'm in school right now so I don't know if this first-time mom is doing it right.

    Thank you.
