    Started incubation on the 4th, in a homemade incubator.

    Temperature and humidity appear perfect.

    Please copy and paste the /watch parts onto the end of to view. View in 720p if your connection allows, slighly better quality.

    This one seems to be moving around:

    This one I'm not so sure of- is it the insides moving of their own accord or the heat of the light causing it to move? I'm aware this egg is more porous than the 1st and is more prone to bacterial infection, but is the dark spot a blood spot or embryo?

    I've since created a foil tube to reflect the light and keep distance from the lamp, but wish to wait until tomorrow before candling again.

    What do you make of it? Any input is welcomed [​IMG]
