    Is there a day (1st, 8th, 18th, etc) that most eggs go bad by if they are going to go bad? I'm at day 9 incubating and did not know if I was over the biggest hurdle or if it's still to come.

    Not too sure about that one, it probably depends on the age of the eggs before they went into the incubator. Have u candled yet? Good luck!

    I candled last night and tossed 9 out of 28 eggs. There were 2-3 that looked iffy but I left them in the incubator just in case since this is my first time incubating and I did not want to make a mistake. The eggs were only a few days old when I put them in the incubator.
