    Could I expect to see anything at 2 1/2 days of incubation? I candled 3 of my 12 eggs just for the heck of it while I was adding water this morning. All of them looked pretty clear, but one had a very faint red line. I also noticed that the yolk was more responsive to movement. Just 2 days ago all the yolks were determined to not move when I tilted the egg. Today they were much more "willing" to dance when I tilt the egg. Is that normal for fertile eggs? Or am I just rushing things?

    That's a really handy link! Thanks! Well it looks like a 2 day embryo is super tiny. I'll give it another day.

    Those pics are soooo cool. My eggs are on day 3 today. So our hatches will be very close.
