Yay! Everything so far appears on track! (I think...anyway!) Candled eggs again this morning (last candled on Day 3) and there is a deffinate U-shaped dark spot in at least 22 of the 36 eggs. Of the remaining eggs, the 12 Penedesenca eggs are just too dark to candle well (I'm using a home made candler, but have ordered a better one), and only 2 eggs of the 36 look bad. One is very porus but has great veining, so I don't know wether to keep it going or not, and the other egg looks clear or infertile maybe (I will give it another couple days, but will toss it then if no progress is made). But I don't see any eggs with blood rings or spots or anything else that would worry me! So I am quite excited! I, however, do not notice too much of an air pocket at this point. Maybe I'm just not seeing it with my cheap home made candler? I have the humidity stable between 46% and sometimes up to 50% but never over 50%. Is it too high or just right? Should I wait another few days and see? Forgive my incompetence, but this is all so new to me and I want so badly to get it right, and every time I candle and see progress it gets me motivated to no end! lol My DH laughs and insists that knowing my luck, every egg will hatch and I'll be 'stuck' with 36 peeps. I want (like every good wife) him to be wrong, BUT I would LOVE it if I had a great hatch! So, maybe I should hope for him to be right just this once? lol To the bator experts here...any advice for me on the next 14 days? I am SO anxious!
