    It is day 10 and I just candled my eggs. I have 11 RIR eggs and 9 show what I am suppose to see. I also have 9 BCM eggs that are just way to dark to see any thing. I am very happy that my first hatch is actually going well at the moment after the rocky start. I just needed to tell some one.

    Thanks

    I know how you feel. I was excited when I saw my first developing egg.

    I know egg-zactly how you feel! I started my hatch in a borrowed LG that I couldn't get right. The temp went up and down, I did everything wrong and STILL when I candled them half of them were alive and moving in the egg. I was shocked!

    Feels really good, doesn't it. [​IMG]

    I ran my hova bator for a week to get temps just right. After 3 days we lost power and before I could get power to it it dropped down to 64.

    I thought that everything died. But to my suprise I see development. I am so happy.

    I've read on BYC that Walmart has a super duper LED flashlight for $19 or so that does a pretty good job looking through BCM eggs...just and FYI [​IMG]
