maybe this will help: http://www.egg-incubator.biz/Embryo-Growth.html
how much you´ll be able to see also it depends on the colour of your eggs. i found that white ones are the easiest to candle and light brown ones are okay, too. but blue ones are challenging and dark brown ones(like maran eggs) almost impossible.

on day 8 if you candler is bright enough you should be able to see the chick quite clear and you should see movment
do a image serch and it should help with comparing them
