    I tried candling my egg but nothing moved. Much space was taken up though and there were veins? Is it still alive? I also tried the water trick and ALMOST half was sticking out. Is it a good living embryo? Will it survive? This is my first time hatching an egg please help!!

    There's a lot of black when I candle and then like there's enough room for a pen to fit then there's the air pocket. There are veins. I would submit a pic but it won't let me

    You may just need a few more posts before you can add a pic.

    How many days has the egg been incubated?
