    [​IMG]... This egg is day 17 of 21 and this picture of me candling it is horrible, but you can't see through the egg at all and it looks like something is in there. Could this egg potentially hatch?

    Try shining the light down through the air cell. I may have a pic of me candling in my photo album for an example. Watch for movement and look for veins. Mostly up by the air cell if the egg is mostly dark and almost through incubation.
