I've also put a thermometer and humidity meter in the container to monitor both.
:It's been 48 hours, and most of them are still fairly soft to the touch (should they be hard?) and some seem to be dimpling. I've been finding that the perlite is dry after only a few hours. I have closed some of the holes in the container leaving only a couple, and draped a moist paper towel over the eggs. :( I'm afraid that I've messed it all up. *sigh* Any advice? How do I "candle" the eggs when they are in a clump? What's a sure sign of "dead eggs"? What to do? Thanks in advance for any advice. I'm sure there's ton of advice in the forum, and I'm going to use the search engine to search for advice, but in the meantime I thought I'd see if anyone can give me any pointers. If it's not already too late, I would love to be able to save these eggs, and/or know I'm just worrying needlessly. Thanks again for any answers to my questions.
