here. And also on this Backyard Chickens site there are some good photos. So on day 8 I took six of my eggs out of the incubator and popped them into an egg carton. It takes a bit of time for eggs to cool down so no need to rush too much but I thought it better to do shifts and keep half warm. I turned off the lights, put the torch on an egg and gently turned it around. Sure enough we could see red veins and a dark shape - and it was moving! We candled all the eggs and only found 3 that don't seem to have taken. I've pencilled a ? on these eggs and will check back in a couple of days before discarding them. I was so excited and relieved to see life and know that I was doing something right. And I've finally managed to capture the attention of the monkey boys!
