    It's day 10 and i just candled my eggs. I'm so excited! out of my 9 scovy eggs 8 are fertile and developing with veins [​IMG] this is my first time incubating eggs which i guess makes me that much more excited to know i've started off right lol. anyway i would realy like to post some pics but can't get a good picture. so i was wondering how you guys get such good candling pictures? when i take a picture it's too dark so nothing comes out but a fuzzy dark egg shape and i can't use the flash b/c then i just get the white egg. any tips or suggestions on how i can get a clearer picture [​IMG] thanks everyone [​IMG]
