9 eggs in the incubator. I candle today day 7, light brown Australorp eggs. I can see a definite air pocket. half the egg a little darker and then the other half darker. I can see some veins and a small shadow bit barely floating around. Only one really light egg I can see the eye clearly and moving. Am I seeing what I'm supposed to?

Good luck with your poultry raising adventures, and I hope you find everything you need to know. Don't forget to take a look at BYC's very useful learning center (If you haven't already)! The learning center as well as the forum should answer your questions! Glad to have you here! See you around with the flock. That sounds right. Check out a picture candling sequence. If you have a candler that leaves a lot to be desired, them you don't see much.
