    Look at the 1st sticky at the top of the incubation forum. It has great pictures of what you might see. You may need a better light source though.

    I use a coleman flashlight that I got from Walmart for about $20. It has 110 lumens and it's pretty bright. Light eggs and medium brown eggs are really easy to see through. I still can't see through some of the really dark BCM's reliably.
