    Now when I candled them a few days ago I found
    5 had movement
    2 are solid and I cant see in them
    2 were dead
    2 had veins but nothing else
    1 had no veins
    I just candled them (tomorrow I am going to buy a better flashlight) and I found
    5 still had movement
    2 solid and I still cant see in (reason I am buying a stronger flashlight)
    2 that I thought were dead are moving.. woo hoo. One is a lot bigger than the others though. not sure as to what to do with that one, he might be ready to hatch sooner. When I candle him I can see him moving his head like he is pecking at the light the others are about 1/4 his size
    1 still is clear no veins and no air sac.

    Any suggestions on the bigger one
