    It's day 7 and we candled our 16 eggs and we have movement in most! [​IMG] It is so neat to see this! (My son thought it was disturbing [​IMG]). Everyone on here has been so helpful and reassuring for this newbie! [​IMG]

    What kind of rooster is in your avatar? Is it yours?

    I have one that looks VERY similar and have no clue what it is. I always thought it was a mutt. Mine is full size, not a bantam.

    i thought EE's were bearded..? he looks to be salmon colored...

    anyways...




    i just candled a couple of days ago, and it was a bit disturbing when i candled the first one... i never knew what to expect really and it totally blew my mind... LOL... since i'm a newb, i don't know the difference or really know what to look for... i just saw some things floating in there... so i figured they were doing aight...


    but this is your thread...


    WooHoo!!!!... happy hatching...

    Yes...that HANDSOME man is mine [​IMG] I thought I had a Golden Duckwing Welsummer. But an experienced chicken person on here told me his colors were off. He's some kinda mix. Here is the pic I got off the internet of the GDW...[​IMG]...

    and here is mine...[​IMG]

    Ours do look alike...mine is full sized too!

    i read as much as i could... but i still saw some stuff that isn't on threads or pictures... well, i guess it's different in person... there were some that had like, veins all the way around the egg, but not as much as others on the rack... so i just left them, i'll candle them later on and see if they are growing or not...
