    I know the temps are right and the humidity is where it should be but the doubt is always there. Tonight I took a flashlight and tried to see something. I'm just at day 5 but on two eggs I could see veins!!!

    Hurray it's really working!!!!!!!!! I plan on candleing at day 10 to see just what I have.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
     
  2. That's great! You have chicks growing!! Congratulations!
    You know, it's always been a bit of a miracle to me that we can 'grow a chick' in an artificial environment --- be it an electric skillet / styrofoam box / incubator.
    The hens make it seem so easy, but it never, never ceases to amaze me [​IMG]

    I hope your little ones continue to grow [​IMG]

    Hey Marsha!
    Congrats! How many are you incubating? It is very exciting and addicting. What kind of eggs are they?
