    Initially I'd say it' infertile, but give it more time, maybe 3 more days & check again. I noticed you are using your hand to shield the egg. Cut a piece of cardboard just larger than the light, assuming your using a flashlight, & cut a hole about 3/4 -1" in the middle. When you lay the cardboard over the light it will shield the glare & you will be able to see through the egg better. I've only used a flashlight to candle all my eggs & I can go through 20 in about 30 seconds. (I've done it A LOT. I never look for wigglers or movers, just fertile/non-fertile)
