Our experience has been that incubating is harder than it sounds when you read the books. We had several batches do poorly before we finally got it right. And seeing chicks develop when you candle is tough...I don't see much of anything for near a week, though my wife is much better.
BTW, be careful about picking them up during the last couple of days before hatching so you put them down the same side up. The unborn chicks have to keep their heads in the air sack, and turning them around too fast can kill them.
