    Well today is day 16. I did my second Candling on day 14

    24 Shipped eggs
    4 broke complements of the PO despite the great packing job

    2 infertal
    1 started and died early
    3 ?? started and going good but not as big as the others
    14 still alive and moving

    24 local eggs
    1 infertal
    1 started and died early
    1 is a green egg and can't see it
    1 ?? started and going good but not as big as the others
    20 still alive and moving

    All in all for my first time incubating I am very happy with the results,add the fact that I am using a LG still air bator, well I feel that so far it is going very good.

    I started Blue orp eggs in the second LG this one is has a fan.
