    I am having a very hard time waiting on them i was trying to see if i could tell anything by candling and only thing i could see was the shape of the air sack it does not move at all. man this is going to be a long three more weeks and 3 days also i will be getting my bcm eggs in the mail Wednesday so I will be even more nerves waiting on those 43 eggs to start moving thanks for all the help i will just have to wait [​IMG]
