Hi, I have 6 eggs in an incubator. (homemade) and I am on day 18 (but I am calling it 17 since I put the eggs in incubator late in day 18 days ago.) Anywho, I candled my 6 eggs this morning 3 are large sized, 3 are regular sized. the 3 lg. eggs are all alive and dandy but growing slower than the others because of their size , meaning they have more fluid in them than the others.If you candle you can see through the eggs slightly near the top, veins and stuff. So I will not put them into lockdown tomorrow. The other 3 eggs will go to lock down in the new bator I whipped up, same size as the other. This is actually good, if one batch hatches faster now I have a heat light for them as well. I will put up pics of my bators soon. If you have questions I will try and answer them. this is Jan and Helene, EE/RIR mixes I hatched last month.
