    You should be able to see something by day 5 but day 7 is good, just remember they can't be turned except slightly once a day until they stick or start growing..

    I actually just candeled 3 of them. There seems to be almost no development. The yolks look a bit larger and darker, and I might have caught the slightest, tiniest, hair-thin vein in one, but nothing else.... I'm hoping this is normal?
