    I just candled my eggs. ( its day 16) and i saw a chick moving. You could clearly tell where the head and feet were in the egg and i actually saw it move. The egg i candled was white and the brown eggs are just dark on the inside i cant see anything.

    All the other eggs are dark except for the bottom where the air bubble is. The white bantam eggs u can see the chicks in!

    Watching the chicks inside the egg was one of the coolest things i have ever seen!

    Quote:Where the bubble is is the top. And the dark area is probably the developing chick! Happy hatching! [​IMG]

    I love candling the eggs and seeing them moving around! [​IMG] My first batch of eggs were bantam cochins, and I could see everything. But now I am on my second batch and they are blue eggs that are impossible to see through! [​IMG] I can tell the darkness has gotten huge and is filling the shell. Mine are about the same age, I should be hatching Thursday. Good luck with them all! [​IMG]
