    My very first attempt at hatching eggs in my brand new incubator and there all growing!!!
    All seven of them [​IMG] Including my Roopert/Nugget egg!! YAY!
    How long should I wait until I check them again? I know I should handle them as little as possible.
    Im on day six soon to be seven.

    Congratulations!!

    I usually check mine the first time at around 12-14 days. I wouldn't check them more than once a week if possible. I know that's only three times, but the less you interfere, the better off they are!

    [​IMG] I always make sure I wash and dry my hands well before handling the eggs. I think it helps the hatch rate to make sure they are as clean as possible.

    If you can do that, you have a lot more willpower than me!!!

    I also wash my hands really well and put hand sanitizer on before I handle them.

    I usually candle day 4 or so. Then 7, 8, 9, 10..... 17. At least, that's more or less how it's gone this time. LOL
