    Hello--- my eggs were due to hatch yesturday (day 21), and so far Ive got nothing. Its my first time incubating and I only have 4 eggs in the bator right now. Do you think it would damage the chicks if I gently candled them tonight? I have a feeling they are all dead. [​IMG]

    I would leave them be for a couple more days. Hope you get some chicks.
