    Well, I have 24 eggs in the bator. Everything appears to be going well and I candled a few and I can see veins...YIPPEE!! Temps are holding good and I'm turning them by hand 2 to 3 times a day. Wish me luck.......I'll keep everyone posted!

    I think I'm on day 7 also, but my eggs are under a broody. They also had a very rough trip via the USPS, so I'm not sure if they are alive. I will probably go out and candle them in the next day or so.

    Best of luck with your hatch!!!!!

    Good luck to everyone! I hope we all have pips soon! I'm counting down.....I read that on the 17th day you stop turning the eggs.

    Well, I candled last night and most of my eggs appear to be developing! Yipppeeee!!!! I can't believe any of these poor eggs survived that horrible trip! Now I'm holding my breath until hatch time. I guess I should do an actual count and see exactly when they are due!! Ha!

    How is everyone else doing?
