    When you candle eggs at 7 days do you have to see movement if it was there before and then stopped? I have looked at candling charts but wondered about movement and heartbeat.

    It can be tough to see the heartbeat sometimes. I tend to not try to make a decision on good/bad until At least day 10.. Though I've given it until day 12 just out of hopes that they are actually developing.
