    Some people told me:
    to smell them and they smell great
    to pick them up and i sould feel movment but i think it would be very hard to do so and if you pick them they will chip
    I candled 2 and it does look like there is a chick!!!

    I had bad humidity and a temp spike. That hatch did run late. I was just about to pitch them when I heard a lady say hers went 9 days late. It did cause one to shrink wrap and one didn't pip.
