    We ordered 4 eggs because we had a broody. The day before the eggs came, the broody decided she no longer wanted to sit. So, we ran out and bought an incubator. Well, there is only one egg left...two had blood rings on day 10 and one never seemed to develop at all. I candled tonight (Day 14) without the best flashlight in the world, and saw a decent sized aircell and a darkness at the bottom where the chick is. However, I couldn't see movement. Does this mean this baby is gone too?? I'm sad that it looks like we were unable to hatch any of these. [​IMG]
