    At day 18 it's probably too crammed in there to see anything. Just put it on lockdown when it's time. *HUGS* Good luck! [​IMG]: Angelique

    Quote:Angelique is right, on day 18 it should be black and you shouldnt be able to see much. [​IMG]

    And Day 18 is the lockdown day I use.... I'd take it out of the turner or stop turning it and let the bator stay closed till Day 21. Good luck! Pics when it's out!
