    After a failed first attempt at hatching due high temps, I candeled my second batch(well only 4 of 30), but 2 were clear and 2 were darker and were moving(like breathing motion!). I left the clears in there because I didn't want to disturb the temps of the growing ones since I'm using a homemade incubator with a light bulb for heat and didn't want the empty space to interfere with the placement temp differences in the incubator at this point. I'm just happy to see some are alive! I think these 2 were Americaunas but I'm not sure since there are a mix of breeds in there. They are small white eggs...., is this possible to be the Americaunas? Thanx!!

    I think I meant australorp eggs, not Americauna...., does this sound like a small white egg maybe?
