    I'm on day 15 of my first time incubating. I candled today (not all but a few) and I see dark masses and veins in all of them but didn't really see any movement. Is that bad? Should I be seeing movement all the time?

    No you won't always see movement of the chick. If you look carefully, you should see the blood veins moving as they pump. At day 15 there is a lot of chick in the egg. It's harder for them to move around.

    I'm on day 15 too!! When I candled earlier I had to really watch closely to see most of the chicks moving at all. Only a few more days!! SO CLOSE! Can't wait until next weekend! [​IMG] Best of luck to you!
