    Yesterday I candled my eggs. I got one of those flash lights I heard everyone talking about on BYC. It worked great on my RIR's I could even see the veins. But when I went to check the one egg I saw, how do I want to say this [​IMG] . The inside of the egg looked like it was floating around so I thought it was no good. I check another one and the same thing. I must say I shook it a little. [​IMG] But when I looked longer at the second egg I saw movement. AND today is day 18, now I think I put them in the bator around 5pm. Do I need to wait until 5pm to take them out of the turner? Thanks for your help
  2. Yes I would wait til around 5 pm to take them out of your turner. Literally you are not at day 18 tl then.
