    I tossed the rest of the eggs this morning. These were from my own chickens., so I was checking fertility anyway.

    I haven't seen anything growing, and some were due to hatch. They started out okay, (when I candled at 10 days) but when I opened them today, there WAS an embryo about the size of a dime. The humidity was good- I kept it at 50%, and my temps were at 100-101 degrees.

    I would just like to know what may have gone wrong, so next time I'll know. Maybe I candled too much? I did add eggs on different days- would that have made a difference that much?
