Today if day 16 for incubating my Califnoria quail eggs, they look to be growing fine and there is a good sized embryo when I candle the eggs that seems to be growing but I can't see any veins or movement, should I be worried?

This close to hatch, the egg, aside from the aircell, should be very dark and you may not be able to see any veins or movement, especially in a quail egg because they are so small and shells can be dark.

The egg isn't completely dark though, I can see the embryo and its relatively large but doesn't fill the whole egg.
