    Today was day 10 for my eggs so I candled them all to take out the ones that werent growing. There were a few that looked like they died at about day 4 or 5 and then one that had a wee tiny chick inside! I'm pretty sure it was dead when I cracked the egg though. I took a few pics, it was awesome to see! If you look close you can see the tiny legs crossed, and the tiny beak.

    awesome pic! My close ups always come out blurry with an auto cam (I could do wonders with 35mm though, I'm a dinosaur!)

    but you might want to warn others in the title, some are more sensitive about these things

    Had an egg fall out of the turner last night so I got a good look at one that age.
