But I have a question I am going to candle before I go into lockdown as I take them off the turner but do I have to have to take the ones I think are quitters out and throw them out?? I want to know because I dont really trust myself! [​IMG]

    As long as they aren't leaking, you don't have to. You can tell by the egg being dark and should be able to see veins attached to the air sac. Good luck with your hatch.
