    Hey, me and my stepdad were candling these eggs and are disappointed by the outcome. Could you tell us how these look? And if maybe there's a hope of one hatching? These all look weird and broken... Please give us an opinion, our family really wants this to happen[​IMG]

    Were these all set at the same time?

    The first two photos look like a clear or early development.

    The dark egg with the saddle shaped air cell in photos 3 and 4 looks close to hatching.

    Photos 5 and 6 look like end of first week of development.

    The last two photos I can't tell... maybe early development, or maybe clear.

    I didn't look at the pics closely but from the comments I understand you may have various stages of development in your hatch. I had a hatch just like that. That's actually how I figured out my forced air incubator still had hot and cold spots. The eggs under the heating element developed on time and the rest were very slow and in the end didn't make it unfortunately. So try a couple thermometers in different places, I think cold spots could be a factor in the various stages of development. Good luck!

    So my question (and my two little sister's question) is will there be a positive outcome? Or hope for one at least? We want this to happen.

    I think you'll have a few hatch. It's hard to tell.
