    When I candled my eggs today I really couldn't see any movement. I liked when I could see the little guys floating around. Yet today nothing, I had a small short spike of 102 two days ago and now I am worried they are all dead [​IMG]

    can you still see veining? I only candle at day 10 or so. At that point if the egg looks like it's where it should be developmentally, I leave it be. I have seen movement.

    Sometimes they move and sometimes they don't. It's like doing an ultrasound. Sometimes the fetus cooperates and you can count fingers and toes. and sometimes it doesn't and all you get is a shot of a blob floating around.

    Temp spikes are ok as long as they are short and few and far between. Don't panic.

    Remember, as they grow the less room to float around they have. at day 12 you are over the 1/2 way point.
