    Ok, so last night was only day 6 on my Barred/Blue Rock and EE eggs, but I just couldn't wait any longer so I candled 6 or 7 of them and ALL the ones that I candled had veins!! I could even see the little ball of the embryo swimming around in one! I also candled one of my Frizzle eggs, which was only day 4, and it had veins too! YAY!!! [​IMG]

    A super bright little flashlight that my husband has. [​IMG] The only thing it says on it is "LED LENSER," but I don't know if that's the brand or not.

    Wooo-Hooo!!! [​IMG] Sooo happy for you! [​IMG]
    It's like Christmas day all over again when you first see those little babies forming!! [​IMG] But it's even better when the hatching times come!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Very very exciting and addicting!! [​IMG] But trust me, it will seem like forever when you have to wait until day 21 or around there! [​IMG]
    Good luck! [​IMG]
