Candling... What's it supposed to look like exactly?

    Well, I tried to candle some eggs today (at 10 days but well, this is my first hatch lol) and I'm not entirely sure how it should look... There was a big wad if you will close to the middle of the egg, but at the ends it was see-thru. But I couldn't see veins or anything like that (if you can this early or at all, I've only heard a few people talk about it, and I've never seen it done.) So basically I'm just wondering what's up with candling lol.

    Thanks guys! That helped a lot. I guess I don't have a high-powered enough light to be able to see all that, but that's awesome.
