    so, I am being patient and hopeful by not candling. Leaving it to the element of surprise.

    Are their other hints or clues to know if the eggs are developing. Did I read somewhere that there would be a spike in temp. due to the growing babies in eggs???
    If so, on what day usually would that happen?

    Well there are no signs of development just by looking at the eggs. you must candle. my temp never spikes so i think you will be fine

    /agree, no temp spikes here to suggest development. Pretty sure the only way to tell is candling, or waiting til you hear peeing >.>

    Why not candle? [​IMG] Candling is part of it. [​IMG]
