    I thinks some people say they can see viens or something by then though some people seem to be confused till about day seven , why do you ask are you seeing stuff in youre wee eggs?

    I want to justify candling them tonight. If I can justify it then it will make sense to my DH, who is scared that I am going to kill them all and then be heartbroken, so very protective of the eggs. The bator got up to 100.9 last night so he woke me up because he didn't know what to do. He's so cute.

    Well Maybe you should take a couple eggs out and see if you can see anything? You dont have to do all of them unless you see stuff in the couple.

    It is possible to see some veins on day 3, just not as easily as on day 7.

    I think candling eggs is addiction, after I see veins and know the embryo start growing, almost everyday I candled them.
    good luck with your project

    I'm on day 2. We'll have a hatch around the same time! (I hope) My last batch didn't do so well. [​IMG] What kind of incubator are you using?

    Sorry wednesdays and thursdays are crazy, I am the leader of a girl scout troop and it cookie season!!! Okay I am sure there are veins in a couple but then I am not sure on some. I almost wonder it I am not turning then enough. Some of the dark spots will move when I slowly move the egg and some will just stay at the top, I wonder what that means.
