    Well, I'm on day 9 with 36 Americauna/EE eggs in the bator, and I just candled. One clear for sure, 4 or 5 are too dark to see veins, but not clear so fingers crossed, and the other 30 I saw veins, movement or both. Yeah! First try with an incubator and so far I'm pretty happy with the progress. I would have been happy with twenty growing at this point. I'm so excited...so cool to see little eyes and legs and wings poking around!
    Now I need good vibes for the next week...I'm going out of town and DH is in charge of turning and watching the temps, he has been schooled extensively by me, so fingers crossed that he does ok. I'm leaving notes all over the house so he doesn't forget:

    TURN EGGS!!!

    Wish us luck!
    Sending good vibes to everyone else waiting right now...

  2. Congrats.
