    I put 13 speckled sussex eggs in the incubator on the 12th of July. I just camdled them and 5have of them you can see veins really well. One had a blood ring so I threw it out. The rest have an air sack at the end but I can't see anything else. Do you think those are growing or what? What would you do? I will try to get pics the next time I candle.

    If you set them July 12th, you should be hatching right now. Did you mean July 21st?

    I guess I got mixed up. The incubator has to go on lockdown on the 12. They're due to hatch on the 15th. *update* I'm so mad at myself, I was candling them and I layed one down on the edge of my carpeted desk and it rolled off and broke so bad their was no way to fix it. I am glad I still have 6 still alive (I saw them move) amd one I'm not sure of. I threw out 7 others because they weren't fertilized.

    ** Two days past when they're supposed to have hatched and nothing yet. They were ok when the incubator went into lockdown. **

    *update* no live hatches. There were 4ok eggs left and one was rotten. The other 3 were fine on lockdown but never absorbed the yoke and died. Don't know why.
