    Were the dots the eyes?

    Don't worry, it's normal :) My three eggs have two dark moving dots and they're on day eleven. Heartbeats too, so definitely alive. Not exactly sure what they are though...

    they are on day 4 so they just look like spiders right now and the dots are too far away to be eyes
