    I am just curious! I received my shipped eggs a couple of days ago. So they are only in the incubator for maybe 3-4 days. I candled them and have already got dark spots with heart beats! Isn't this toooo soon? Could the heat between the beginning shipping place and destination(here) have been enough to start them to grow? I am not sure that I am asking this right but I am hoping yall understand. Either way I am so excited.
    But I am also concerned about when lockdown will be now. Any answers will be appreciated. Dont know if you realize this but I am new to the hatching thing.LOL
