    Relax, you'll do more damage taking them out and candling them. Are they peeping/moving? Have you got the temp and humidity right? They still might not pip for another 24 hours, please leave the bator alone!!

    You shouldn't be candling them during lockdown.

    they are under a broody, not an incubator. sorry should i have mentioned that before. [​IMG] the reason i candled is because i didn't hear peeping...

    Doesn't matter whether they're under a broody or in an incubator.....you need to leave them alone.
