    One out of four of my eggs that I am trying to hatch in my homemade bator is on it's 8th day and I can see the chick and its eye moving!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] It looks like it's breathing! [​IMG] [​IMG] I am very excited and I can't wait for it to hatch! I made a brooder for the chick when it hatches, in about 14+ days.
    Unfortunately, the other eggs are not forming. [​IMG] I might just throw them out if they don't start to form by day 10.
    any advise? [​IMG]

    give the other eggs till about day 7 -10 and if still nothing, break open and toss out, that way you will know if they were fertile or if the baby chicks died
