    Second hatch for me. First one I got 4 out of 20. Not real good but one or two would have made me happy. Anyway I am trying something different this time. I have not even messed with them at all. Just added water now and then. I do not even want to candle until day 18 when I go into lock down.So more or less I have been in lock down from the start. I hope this will work. Allot less stress. Do you have to candle all along or not??? I have to learn everything the hard way to really remember I think. Thanks for all help.

    I am pondering candling.... but the incubator is in our bedroom and the last thing I need is an egg exploding [​IMG] [​IMG] I was going to candle on day 12 or 13 to see if they have anything inside and if not get rid of them. I only have 24 and I started last night around 2100 hrs. Let me know what you do, I will be happy if 4 make it out of this [​IMG]
