    I needed to get into the bator today to refill the water wells I only filled the one large center well at first and was having trouble getting my humidity up to mid 40's. I took the time to candle the eggs to mark the air sac since i was I was in there. :lol: So today is day 4 and I can very clearly see veins in 11 of the 32 I have sent! I can't see through some of the dark shells (with out getting to invasive). I figure since I candled them today, I'll leave them until after Thanksgiving so I can tell for sure the growth! There are babies growing!!!! :p

    take it from someone who was just as excited and step away from the bator. Once they pip do not help! I was so tempted and nervous but forced myself to go to bed and woke up to a bator of chicks! The best thing is to get out of the house. Makes them hatch faster ;p
