    I decided that I want babies. So I'm using the RCOM incubator...

    This one...

    *I'm just using all these pics as references... they're not pics of the actual egg*

    Anyway, I'm on day 4 and I'm freaking out. I can't tell if what I see is this:

    Or this one which means bye bye baby:

    So here's my question... should I just wait a couple days to see if it forms anything more definable? Or should I put another egg in just in case and start the incubator over?

    Day 4 is hard to tell for sure. I Usually waite untill day 10 at least!
    Let it sit...and give it a few more days.
