    Wow, every egg I can see into has life going on.
    Can't see in the marans, but I can make out movement in the wellsummers, barnevelders and can really see lots of swimming around in the hamburgs.
    WOW.
    These are shipped eggs and they all seem to be live and growing.
    I'm amazed on many levels.
    Fingers crossed, day 21 is 4/16.

    To see a marans, you need an LED Lenser. Go to Home Depot, they have them $49... but they work.

    Is that not the coolest thing? I candled today too and most of my eggs are really dark, but could make out the air sac, at least. This was day 11. I lost 13 out of 42 so far, with 29 left, Sure hope they make it! And I SURE am having fun! [​IMG]
