    DD and I just finished candling our eggs. We put 41 eggs in They were cochins,Australopes,Polish and Ameracaunas So far we have had to remove 5 that were clear,two of those were broken at the ends. Three more we marked with question marks and will recandle in a day or two. The rest we saw little embryos swimming around. I can't believe it. In one egg you could actually see two little embryos swimming around ? Is that twins? This is our first hatch. We also have 18 set the same day at a friends she will candle tomorrow. I know theres no gaurantee but its looking good so far.

    Could be, and they won't make it. Was the egg a double yolker?
    It could also be another part of the chick you are seeing.
    Mark that one so you can see what is going on, and of course keep us posted.
