They look great..remember every time you open your incubator you lose heat and humidity so open as little as possible.I candle mine at day 10 and day 18 when I take my turner out

I'm no expert, but they look great to me too. I love that we can see into that shell a little and see them moving, it amazed me the first time I saw it too!! I've gotten to the point where as much as I want to see, I only candle on 18 when I set my eggs... my hatch rates have risen a lot since I quit being so nosey (hahaha)! But I do miss seeing them move around! Enjoy the development of your chicks... hatching day is only a few short days away!!! It only seems like forever the first couple times!
