    I would leave and candle again on day 10 or day 14 to see if they are still growing. Good Luck

    Quote:You had better check the thermostat/heating unit. I borrowed an incubator from a buddy last year to hatch with and would get sudden spikes or drops of several degrees for no obvious reason. I highly suspect a bad thermostat or heating unit was the culprit.
