    We are on day 7, I candled for the first time ever.
    Wow thats so cool, my white eggs two are for sure good two look clear I'm going to recheck them at day 10 . My light brown eggs I think are all ok.
    My dark brown eggs I'm not sure yet.
    I'm hoping that at 10 or 14 days I'll know more.
    My temp is staying good my humidty is up and down.
    I'm so exiced and can't wait till the next step.

    Isn't it exciting!! I have some due the 1st and tried to candle some yesterday, the only ones I can tell anything is Jody's silkies and they look great! I too have some dark ones that I've only been able to see some movement in one. I just can't see the veins with my flashlight, so I'm trying with a different light that's stronger with cardboard over it and a tiny hole in the center tonight.

    GOOD LUCK!!!!
