    Is it possible to get photos of candling that show inside the egg?

    Wow... when I asked the question I really thought 'no way' .... but those candling photos are great! I had been trying to imagine from hearing descriptions, but a picture really does the trick.

    thanks!

    Yep, and with the bright bright light, you can even see toes later in development. However, if it's your first time hatching, try not to candle too often and let them be, as the less you disturb the bator, the better chance you'll have a better hatch.
