    Fingers crossed for you! I have another batch staggered by 6 days. I will switch the one group to their own Bator when it gets close to lockdown time. I candled 20 that I just put in Friday evening and 18 are already showing development. My paint silkie eggs are down to 7 out of 12 with 1 or 2 more I'm about to toss. The paints are on day 9. Just locked down 33 others! [​IMG]

    hdowden, glad you finally got your eggs!! (I remember seeing your post about it somewhere else) These are your firsts, right? Mine too, if so. Lawd, the waiting is killing me and I just put them in Saturday. I keep hoping for a turbo-hatch, just one little chick please... [​IMG]

    yep my first ever i feel bad for the dcm i had as a tester though. i accidently cracked and had to toss it and it was developing. i'm hoping all the eggs are still viable after this long wait for the warmth of my bator, not holding my breath though [​IMG]

    ok well lets see...yesterday 10/26 i had temp problems from my 3 year old messing with the incubator but its all good. i was going to wait till tomorrow to candle but couldnt resist the urge. out of the 18 d'uccle eggs i got 4 appear to be duds and 1 looks like a blood ring which leaves me with 13 eggs that all have dtron moving chick embryos in them. this is the first time to incubate and candling is so cool when you can see the baby growing to bad they didnt have a built in candler to the incubator so you didnt have to touch the eggs

    10/28 ~ will be day 10!!!!!

    it looks like i have 2 more quiters [​IMG] but none are getting tossed unless they start to stink. have read that some who thought they had blood rings and quiters actually hatched. if they are quiters that leaves me with 10 d'uccle eggs and my 3 marans
