Okay, I know, you guys have all done it a thousand times. Probably started in grade school. But I have been trying for days to candle my first eggs with a wind up flashlight that my mom gave me. Tonight when my hubby said he wanted to watch football..I said"I'll make a deal with you..Find me a decent flashlight and I won't complain about football (tonight)". He whipped out a mini maglight like he was expecting this challenge.?? Pointed it the ceiling and showed me how it adjusts. So I tried it and..Holy cow! I can actually see inside an egg..And it's moving, like it's own little footbal game. I so wanted to call to him and make him come watch the eggs, but that wasn't in the deal. Most of the ameraucana eggs I ordered look scrambled, I may have two or three that are showing veins. The eggs from my own girls, that went in a few days sooner, are wiggling! I may only have a couple out of 12 that aren't doing anything. I feel like I just saw my own sonogram! That teeny little creature is there only because I want him/HER there and will only survive if I do my best to get it right! I marked the shells of those who wiggled and those with veins. I'll be leaving work early tomorrow to try it again and hopefully add wiggler marks! I could do this full time! How long before I should give up on an egg? I don't want a stinky explosion. Is there any tell tale sign?
