    im hatching my backyard mixes and im on day 6. i know that after a bit once they have formed pretty well they generate their own heat. right now they are very small and have eyes. they also have veins going every where. when should i expect them to genarate heat?

    they will add heat but never enough to self sustain. After day 14 you will notice the heat source in your incubator coming on for less time with longer intervals
