    I have one egg that I candled tonight, and I can see veins, but I can also see a little black thing, that came up near the shell. I just let the egg sit there for a moment, and I swear I saw it moving around. Is is possible to see a little chick moving already?

    Are you incubating brown eggs? If so, what do you use to candle?

    Thanks-

    WooHoo!!! I have 13 silky eggs and 10 black/blue cochin eggs. I "think" that 8 of the 13 silkies are growing. I have not really been able to see anything in the cochin eggs, because they are brown. About the only thing I can see is a big dark blob. The silky eggs are cream color and easier to see through. My FIL made us a box with a light inside of it. That is what I have been using to candle with. It works pretty good. I'll have to take a picture of it and post it on here.
