I set eggs on Saturday night at 8pm. Now it's just past 72 hours and I want to see something! I "test candled" a few and I'm starting to see veins....in some it seems like the yolk is moving around as I turn the egg?? Is that OK? This is my first time incubating anything.

That is good news. Now to save yourself some trouble, only candle on day 10 and lockdown. It saves alot of worry.​

Mine either truth be told. But I learned over time, candle when it matters and save yourself the heartache. Earlier than day 10 is really iffy and just gives you heartburn.
