    It's day 9 for my fertile egg! [​IMG] (I have 1 out 4 fertile ones)
    Is this normal: The chick in the egg is like wiggling around! i see this little "spine-like" thing attached to the dark spot were the chick is growing and it like moves!!! [​IMG] And i can also see the chick's eyes a little. Is it normal for the chick to start moving by day 8-9? Thanks! wish me and the egg luck!!! [​IMG]

    Sure. They'll be quite active around this time. Once they get close to hatch day, though, they don't have as much room to move around so they'll be relatively sedate. I like to see my embryos blobbing around in the egg [​IMG] .
