On the 1st we set 9 banty, 6 black chicken that lays speckled eggs and 3 americauna eggs in the fancy store bought incubator. I've been turning them 3 times a day (when I first get up, suppertime and just before I go to bed). Anyway I just got finished candling them and it's looking like my little banty rooster at least has been doing his job. All but one of the banty eggs look good with something growing inside. One of the americana eggs never started. Hard to tell with dark brown speckled eggs as my flashlight apparently isn't bright enough to candle well on those. One thing I am liking about this incubator is that it's sure holding it's temp very well.
