    **This is my position**

    It is day 22 and I forgot to stop turning the eggs in the incubator! I was supposed to stop turning them at day 18 but did it at day 19.5!
    I put the eggs in the incubator on July 13, and they should of hatched yesterday! They are rare Ayam Cemani chicken eggs and we paid $160 for 6 eggs that were rather old and had a small chance of hatching. If we were to buy newer ones they would be $610. WAY over our budget. I have tried candling the eggs at day 5, 7 and 11, but none didn't even show veins. Some looked darker than others but I'm not sure... And since they were shipped eggs, every one has a detached air cell.......... I just candled them all now and only about 2 or 3 looked clear, and the other ones looked SOMEWHAT darker... Not completely black, but just dark... And one of them i candled I thought I saw movement a few times, but it could of been me. It was small movement, like the embryo (if it was one) was small...
    Will any hatch if the turner was still turning for this time? Does it sound like any will hatch?

    THIS NEEDS TO BE ANSWERED- It is day 22!!!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! [​IMG]

    Could you post a photo of what one of the "darker" eggs looks like during candling? I know photos of candling don't often turn out well, but it still might help me know if any are still alive. The continued turning may have slightly damaged the chances of hatching, but worse things have happened and eggs have still hatched.

    Good luck!
