    (I hope you can see the pic) This is a silkie egg day 7. The little chick is at the top- but all of the veining stops 1/2 way down (on all of my eggs- can you see how it looks clearish from 1/2 way and below?-). Is that normal?

    That is pretty cool seeing them move!

    Thanks~

    Yup, totally normal. They don't tap all the resources of the egg right off--they have to build up to it. [​IMG] It's like infrastructure development--it doesn't happen all at once. [​IMG]
