    I lost my first thread somewhere so I guess I'll make a new one. These eggs are now 12 days along so I decided to get more pictures of them! I'm so excited!

    White egg: I could see little toes moving!

    White eggs are so much easier to candle :p


    I have a short blurry video that I put on youtube.

    Thanks. I think I have that exact light (without LED upgrade) in my hunting backpack. I need to go check. Hopefully my husband hasn't "borrowed" it or it's gone forever LOL. Thanks again
  5. Nice shots!!
    When I try to take pics of eggs they never come out 'right'.
    I've got a group of Day 14 (and Day 7) eggs in the bator that I haven't candled yet --- might do that this evening (woohoo, high excitement on a Sat night). I'm curious to see if my new Polish roo is doing his business.

    No problem, I really like the light.

    I find the key to get good pics is to take lots of pics. [​IMG]
