The candling sounds promising.

The temps are perfect. Lets hope there are not any surprises during the incubation period.

Day 5

Things looking good no sign of mould or any other nasties, it's developing condendation on the lid of the container so I've started wiping that off every time I check on them.

Very well done, that condensation build up sounds good, cause you need high humidity with the eggs. Good luck and holding thumbs. I think the incubation period is about 53 days.
