    Ok so here we go...It the night of day 17 and I candled again..

    Overall things look good...lots of movement and lots of large air cells...

    Started out with 12 and have 10 left...after candling looks like I may only end up with 6 or 7...not bad I guess for a first timer...

    During candling tonight I noticed some dark masses in the bottom of 2 of the eggs...Any idea what they are?..when I say masses I mean seperate from the body of the chick...looked like poop in the bottom of the egg...

    I thought the first 48 hours was long....this next 48 is going to be tough!!....


    MUST SIT ON HANDS!!!!>>>STEP AWAY FROM THE BATOR!!!!>>>>>
