Today is day 6 and I couldn't stand it any longer, so I went ahead and candled my eggs. I know this is early in and I am not giving up onthem yet, but so far what I see is, can't tell anything in the Aracauna ones, except a couple you can see a dark area and clear area, can't see anything like veining.
All of the Orp/RIR look clear

In someof the Cochin Eggs I am seeing what appears to be veining, so my question is, the veining I see is near the top of the egg, it also appears that the very top has the air bubble. Is this where the veining is usually seen.
I have a very small very bright LED flashlight and it works pretty well, but I am looking for something much brighter for the Green ones.
Any suggestions orlinks to pick up a great candler is appreciated. For the $6.00 bucks I forked over on a chance the one I have is definitely not bad, but brighter would be better.

All of the eggs I have in my bator have the veins at the top by the air sac, so I would say yes thats where they should be, but this is my first run at incubating. Hopefully someone more knowlagable (sp) comes along and and gives their opinion.

I bought a little flashlight from Wal Mart has 7 little led lights and has "Garrity" written on it, it was $5 and change. Pretty bright little light.
