    This is my first attempt at hatching.

    Curiosity got the best of me and I took a peek at the eggs I have in a mini chick bator.

    One egg looks just like a yolk the other has a round circle.
    Its not so clear in the photo (#2 center) but it is clear as day when candled.

    Could I be seeing the embryonic disc?
