    I candled the 15 that havent hatched, 8 were obviously duds, the other 7 could still be viable, i'll give them an other day or two.

    Ok, other seven no good. had 4 that quit probably 4-5 days ago, and three were fully formed, just didn't hatch. So 20 it is.

    All 20 are still going strong!!! Any ideason what colors they may be?
