    Any flashlight will work, the stronger the better in the early stages of development. Are the spots on the shell of the egg? if so that just a fault in the shell, there should not be any white spots inside the developing egg. You should be looking for veining and a little red spider looking thing. a few days later you will se an eye and it will wiggle around.
