    I did because I read somewhere that some people do. I found 3 more quitters on day 10 and was able to check the air cells again. I have 4 air cells that look rather large for day 10 but the rest look good. I separated those 4 from the others so I know which ones they are. They're all still in the same incubator, those 4 are just in their own row.

    There are pictures on the Incubating 101 page that I compared them to.

    Can anyone add that picture to the thread?

    After getting caught up on the thread as best I can while caring for sick kids at home (ugh), I have a candling update for anyone keeping score at home ;-)
    Ok- on Day 10 (yesterday) out of 8 shipped Marans in the Brinsea, I have 7 going strong, one looks like it quit a few days ago.

    My own flock's eggs were day 8 yesterday in the Hovabator- Only 1 of the 6 is viable :-( Very surprising considering I've seen good fertile bullseye in all 9 girls' eggs with him for a couple of months. If time allows I'm going to crack open the clears tonight or tomorrow and see if they started or were just not fertile.

    So looks like I'm going to move my lone egg from the Hova to the Brinsea. That puts me with 8 total eggs for now. 7 due 11/20, 1 due 11/22.
