    Quote:you would be able to see embryos, but personally, i watch it and just look to see movement in the shadows. give it a few more days and you'll be amazed at little feet and beaks moving about! [​IMG]

    elkmont,ala.
    I wait to day 18 when I remove the tuner to candle my Dom. eggs.
    the air sac was clearly visable. The rest of the egg was black from the
    chick.

    The air sacks look good so I will just wait and see.
