    Im on day 8 i candled last night and 6 of the 9 seem to be doing good i could see them swimming and moving yay. one of the 9 is a very dark brown egg its to hard to see in it i know it has a yolk but not sure about anything else. the other one has the dark dot but the veins are runny and the yolk is just white. is that normal or did it die early? the other i could see the veins but no sign of the chick im hopeing its just hiding from the nerves mom lol

    If you see veins DO NOT throw it out. If you're not experienced in candling, you might not know what you are seeing and throw out a live embryo. Just keep it in the incubator and check it again at day 14.
