    you should be able to see a very tiny black dot with red spider web veins coming from it on day 7. Before then it is nearly impossible to see anything. Hope that helps!!!

    i am still very new to candling. I definately wait til at least day 7 if not more. Then you should be able to tell.

    Just looked at the thread and at 76 hours there is a picture of a few faint veins but mine dont have that [​IMG]

    i am so nervous this time as the last time the eggs were free from a friend but this time there is about £80 worth of eggs in it [​IMG]

    Dont panic until day 10. It is hard to see unless you have a really high powered flashlight.

    Here is a picture of a candler I made. I was looking for cracks in the shells before I put the eggs in the incubator.
