    We are at day 14 in the incubator. The eggs I got really had a bad trip here. 3 out of 6 was broken in transport. One egg cracked at day 3. So tonight I tried candling again. First time incubating so really wasnt sure what to look for been reading everything I could find on here. Also dont have the best to candle with. So with flashlight in hand tried again. One egg doesnt look like much going on, but the other egg MOVEMENT! I wasnt sure I really saw it til my DD said Did you see that it moved sorta looked like a stretch. I am sooo excited. Now if it just hatches ok. Lock down is Wednesday. Wish me luck

    Good luck.

    Will it be all by itself?

    Time for a trip to the feed store to get it some companions.

    I have some 3 week olds they are small but may have to get a friend. Would be nice if the other hatches too. But kinda doubt it. Its in the incubator too just in case.
