    I have 8 guinea and 6 duck eggs on day 24, I just candled them and almost every single one has an internal pip. Should I move them to the hatcher early? I wouldn't want them to be in the wrong position for hatching. What would you do [​IMG]

    Well, I'd just leave them in the bator, but that's just me.
