    Well today was day 4 for the eggs, 15 EE and 7 fizzles and i candled them. I saw ity-bity veins on one egg! 2 i could not see anything, they were clear, they are also only the size of a quarter. The rest of them I could see a big dark round shape towards the broad end. I hope that is a good sign, I am going to wait until Mon/tues to try again! [​IMG]

    Do you think the blob is a good sign?

    I usually wait until day 7, so I dunno what you'd be seeing...veins are great, but I wouldn't work about the others yet...just let um grow! [​IMG]

    alot of the eggs I have candled I could see stuff on day 4 but there have been almost as many I coudnt see much till day 5 or 6 or day 7 or 8 two of the little blighters had me worried till day 10 but are now alive and kicking.. Give them time. some like to play hide and seek and some are slow to get started maybe and I have a harder time on my mieduium and dark brown eggs then my white or light brown eggs. and I have just about givein up on my dark green / olive colored ones I can barely make out the air cell in those this early.
