    Just wondering if anyone else is on day 7? Last night I candled and had 4 eggs with really good veining ( couldnt help myself had to do it ) [​IMG]. This is my first time hatching, I have a MissPrissy styrobator, one of the 4 eggs looked like the small spot was moving, is that possible or was my mind playing tricks on me? lol

    Ok so ive been looking at a site that shows what to look for at the different stages of growth, and there are a couple of mine that look farther along than day 7, is this possible? I bought them from someone on ebay, and he said when he shipped them they were no more than 24hrs old, or so he says anyways. [​IMG]

    I am on day 9. I candled on day 7 too:). I think you are seeing ok and I have had eggs that seemed to develop more than others...but they all hatched at the same time. So don't overanylize (sp). Did they all grow so far? I only have 4 under a broody. I was trying to reach maransguy to buy an egg from him to hatch with them, but he did not answer me [​IMG]
