  1. yes you do you saw veins and movement . that is worth more than a thousand pictures . very cold time of the year and a lot of us have had a problem with infertile eggs . so you may too. But wasn't what you saw so cool . really in darker eggs all you can look for is a changing or cloudy look to the egg . starting at the air cell going toward the bottom . since I don't do air cells and humidity is so high here I don't even look until look down . when dry is as low as you can go [​IMG].whats the point. with my box candlers just look from the bottom I san see all the way through . .and only because you are unsure would I candle on day ten . whatever you get it will be you that gets it . we can talk and talk but you do the hatch and gain the experience .[​IMG] start if you are not already planning the next one . best get to my daily chores [​IMG]

    336 hours and 52 minute update: All 13 still look good, saw some great movement in a few, which was fun. Air cells look a little on the small side, so I dropped the humidity to 30% When I check again for lockdown Thursday, I'll decide if they need another day and maybe lockdown Friday instead.
