    I also do this..and like Sally just showed. I just in fact had to do this with my hatch..and she got to come out of her glass last night. Still wobbly, but standing, and is able to get up if she falls on her back. That's what I watch for the most when I put them back with other chicks that are all over the place, that they can stay upright, or get back upright if they fall on their backs. She does need to be shown how to drink and eat now. Hoping she catches on with the others as she gets even stronger as I feed her for now.

    For candling, I use a Coast HP7. It is 250 lumens. I can see into my welsummer eggs enough to see veining, growth and movement.

    Here is a faverolles egg to compare. They are from the same incubation batch, and are on day 13.

    Absolutely. I can try to figure out how to give you the link directly to the original post, if that would be better?
