    Well, I'm just not having any luck with hatching out a Showgirl. This is my 2nd batch the first batch contained 6 eggs, none hatched, this second batch I got 9 one right off the bat one was cracked all the way around, 6 out of the 8 left, had very bad loose air cells, one looked like a very old, egg. So that left me with 1, on day 12 he was swimming like a stinker, on day 14th, nothing. No movements what so ever, I think he decided to quite on me. I'm so sad, I was hoping for just ONE showgirl.. I still have it in the incubator just in case, I'm wrong, lockdown is Monday due to hatch on Thursday. I'm still hoping he is just fooling me and will still hatch but my hopes aren't very strong at this point...[​IMG]
