    So we had a powercut last night [​IMG] No idea for how long, the egg was cold - not freezing...but cold.
    All the food in the fridge was still cold....

    Only 4 days left [​IMG]
    What do you reckon? I can't candle until later tonight.

    Just go ahead and let it try and hatch. It might be dead, but why bother with candling?

    Just go 22 days and if they haven't hatched, then you are done.
