    I had just candled last night (Day 3) and I just had to look again tonight to see if anything had changed....I did move one egg from the ? section to the devloping section in my incubator, but I hate myself now for opening the dag on bator!!!

    Quote:[​IMG] Howdy newbie!!! You have GOT to relax. Opening the bator over and over will cause humidity and temps to drop and rise and drop and rise. Leave it alone. Candle on day 10 and at lockdown on day 18. Over candling CAN affect your hatch.
