I started my very first hatch a week ago, with shipped eggs. I screwed up many times in the first couple days, with temps swinging between 88* and 110*. Every time I opened the bator to hand turn the eggs, it got all out of whack again. I'm not loving this LG, but I bought the egg turner on day 3 and that really helped stabilize the temps. I candled them today, after looking at day 7 pics to see what to look for. Three eggs are clearly going, with a little bitty chick dancing around in there and lots of red colored veining. So those i know are ok thus far. Others, I can't figure out. Most are still very clear, but they have an obvious air cell at the top. some are "sloshy" when I turn them. Some have a tiny dot that floats around as I move the egg- but no veining or anything and the dot does not move of it's own accord. I broke open three eggs, and they looked like normal eggs like from the store. I'm guessing they were never fertile to begin with? Should I chuck all but those three eggs? None smell bad or anything. I'd hate to kill off late bloomers, but the difference is pretty obvious- the good eggs are darker, redder, veiny... and these are just like they looked on the first day. Chuck them? I have since ordered the fan kit for the LG, I'm confident that I can control the temps better now than when I started, and I'm not willing to buy a new bator just yet. This one is finicky, but it's not impossible. I'm thrilled that 3 of the eggs survived me. Here's to hoping those three make it to hatching. One is a buff Silkie from SQ stock, and the other two are either Silkies (not sure on colors) or Showgirls. Pray for three live chickies- and 2 live Showgirls!
