    Awesome box Yokel! Much more secure than the cage. Here's hoping nothing gets to her or the eggs!

    Good morning everyone.


    202 hours (or 8 days, 10 hours) and 33 minutes in. Over a third of the way done.

    I'm locking down Wednesday! [​IMG]

    Pulled all the clears last night, and cracked them to be sure. 16 pulled (out of 32). 2 actually had a little blood in them, but no development.

    A few candling pics. I'm actually a little worried about these, as development seems a little behind the rest.
    Most are much move full, but the blood vessels still look good on these, so maybe they will just be slower.
