    I should have 38 eggs by tommorrow night and I will start.
    11 of the eggs were cold when i got them not frozen. 13 were warm or just layed. Getting a dozen from a local guy.
    So we will see, hope the roosters were doing there jobs and taking care of the ladies, havent seen them .
    will keep everyone posted.

    I did a test run and had the temp adjusted. Added the eggs and the temperature had to be adjusted. Makes sense seeing as I am adding something.
    Temp: 99.9F
    humidity: 30%

    I wouldn't worry much about the cold eggs, I am pretty sure that I set some frozen eggs to see what would happen and the ones tha I marked are hatching so I dont know for sure if they were frozen or just cold! Good luck on the hatch!!

    1st candle

    As far as I can tell they all have something going on. couple had what looked like "pores", bacteria entered the egg, but also looked like it had something forming inmiddle. Also couldnt tell if there wer blood spots or veins. I should have take pics.
    Figure give it another week to candle again.

    Me and my son looked at pics and vids of candeling online. Got to see one hatch. He got even more excited. He was like dad is that going to happen to our eggs. I said hope so and he was like lets get off computer, lol. Not sure what he thought was going to happen with our eggs.

    Also he bought a dz from a farmer and they are marked and he calls them his eggs. Had to be extra carefull he said.
