    I made my incubator, so I was VERY nervous! I just had to jump in and set my eggs. I kept putting it off until everything was perfect. So far so good...I candled on day 5 and 8 out of 11 had clear veins. Not sure about the others..I did see blood rings though. I'll check them again in a couple of days and pull the ones that aren't developing. I bought my eggs from the local feed store for $2, so not a ton of $$ invested in my first hatch. Best of luck to you!!
