They are alive!

For those who have been wondering about the fate of our eggs after the electricity shutdown last Saturday, here is an update: last night we candled the eggs, and most of them are looking good... and there are a couple that look as though they were never fertile in the first place, so I suppose all in all no damage was done.

It was difficult to take a high-quality photo, but if you enlarge it and look carefully you can see the embryo and blood vessels. 

So, our snuggling with them under the blankets for warmth probably helped! 

Here are some links about what to expect/do if you are incubating eggs and the electricity shuts down.

I'm glad that the eggs look so encouraging :) I had been wondering.
