    Thank you, Sally... I've studied that since December 10th...up one side and down the other. When I tried locating the air cells today (upon arrival), I had NO bearing on any of them... I went to find my bookmark to this page (with the candling) and I had trashed it. I just watched it for possibly the 300th time and I am still convinced my eggs either:
    A) Have no air cells or
    B) They have Day 18 AC

    What d'ya say I throw them all in and see what happens...? Already a total rookie... I reallllllly needed to use the turner too, due to a surprise trip to the mountains and (hopefully) a house sitter that can handle two days of egg sitting on Days 6,7 and half of 8. UGH!

    Please help! This little bit hatched on its own in about an hour. Foot was in in absorbed yolk. Most of yolk seems to have leaked away and now looks like intestines and innards. What should I do? This is my first baby to hatch.

    LOL! Yes I am building a cooler bator. That is about as far as my building skills go. I have been looking around at designs and know what I want[​IMG] so I will probably start to order stuff in the spring once I sell eggs and start my EE serama project! But it is for sure going to happen[​IMG][​IMG]
