    IMO, I don't think you have to see movement on day 8. I don't think they would be developed enough yet to see a whole lot. I have incubated several times and if you see veins and an air cell leave it in there. Hopefully someone will come along soon and give an exact answer.

    I could never see veins on my brown eggs, but I saw the embryos on one batch....
    the first batch I saw nothing... and so far 7 have hatched! I'm on day 21/22 (not sure on that counting thing)
