    Hey - candled my eggs today and i made a mistake the first time lol - im positive now that two out of six are developing at the moment although one of them i am worried about.

    You know how you see the embryo with the veining at each side - well - one of them, the embryo seems to be right against the air sac like i can see viening against the air sac but i cant hardly see the embryo or the other side of veining at all.

    Will this be a problem at all?

    I say it is fine. They are all a bit different. Make sure you turn them 3x a day and I would close it up and candle again on day 18, and then hold your breath for the last three days. Good luck.

    yea i always turn them three times daily - im happy with only two developing so far as this is my first time hatching plus i recieved the eggs from ebay plus they were laid about 5 - 7 days before they were put into the incubator.
