    Yes that is what i have just seen big black mass to the one side of the egg and the other side is pretty much clear , a good size air sac and i could see slight veining at the top very close to the air sac but it was very faint ,i am only candling with a wee torch though. I have been panicking the moment i didnt see movement this is the onl egg left out of 6 so im a nervous wreck [​IMG]

    Hey, me and my family incubate eggs all the time, and I'm ALWAYS just as nervous as I was the
    first time. [​IMG] Not seeing movement in the egg at this stage usually isn't a big deal. Last year we had
    some eggs that were bouncing around like crazy and some that never wanted to move, but all hatched
    fine. [​IMG] I'd try not to handle it or candle to often, though. [​IMG]

    Good luck!

    I went into lockdown last night. I have 5 pips so far tonight and several wiggling. I go into lockdown with another batch tomorrow.

    Now 7 pips and lots of wigglers.
