    I WAS WONDERING IF THE EMBRYOS ALWAYS MOVE AROUND SO MUCH OR ARE THEY FREAKED OUT BY THE BRIGHT LIGHT. I GUESS MY QUESTION IS....IS CANDLING STRESSFUL OR NOT.

    Good question. I don't think it would be stressful, like all babies while they have room to move they do. Just my thought. [​IMG]

    I think it's just a surprise to them. Might not want to blind them, but a quick candling probably doesn't do much harm.

    Not sure when they have sight
    that seems like it would be necessary to surprise them
