    I recandled my 4 polish, and they are swinging on the vines! I candled Cynthia's eggs, I know its only day 6, but I'm excited. I have 8, 2 of the 8 show a blob moving around and veins. The other 6 I'm not sure about at this point. The shells are real thick. I'm pretty sure I see veins. And pretty sure I see air pockets. So I will wait a few days and candle again. These 6 look like the others, actually, but I couldn't find the little moving embryo. At this point, the eggs are more experienced than I am!

    Chel, Yes it is, Its like theirs real babies in there. Boy, those thicker shells are sure hard to see into. I am now hovering. I have 11 days to go on the first batch and they are still moving around. Karen

    Now all I want to do is candle them all the time and I know I can't. It's just so exciting.
