    last time I candled my eggs was on day 6 (4-17-11) and could barely see embryos developing ( little black dot with spider web of viens) I candles again today (day 8) and the ones that were growing on day 6 now look like what I've seen pictures of them looking like on day 12. The temp has stayed around 100-101 with the highest it's gotten is 102 ( LG still air, hard to maintain temp. lol) is it normal for them to progress this much in 2 days?

    the embryos from days 8-13 kinda look the same to me when i candle [​IMG] but its not possible for an embryo to progress that quickly. as long as you're SURE about how old they are, this isnt much of a problem [​IMG]
