    Ok so I am at day 6 of a staggered hatch. Those of you who read my post about the destroyed eggs that were first shipped. Anyway, i recieved the new eggs today and added them to the bator. While I was in there I just couldn't help myself. I did not check them all but checked quite a few. It appeared that of the 6 eggs that survived 1st shipment, 4 of them have life starting or at least thats what it appeared to be. Could see veins and saw Movement in a few. Also checked a few of my own eggs and most looked good as well. I think there are a couple of infertile (clear). i know it is way to early to be counting my chickens, but it was soooooo exciting to see thechanges in the eggs. I really hope what I was seeing was good. We will find out in about 2 weeks [​IMG]
    Next week if I candle again I will try taking pics.

    Wish me luck:D
