    When your candling an egg and the yolk moves around as the egg does, is it not a viable hatching egg?

    What day of incubation are you on?? I sat here and thought about it and since I hand turned a few batches of eggs I would take the opportunity to candle a few here and there, the yolk/embryo always moved around.. Can you take a photo of your egg while candling it?
