    So, tonight (day 9), I candled my ee eggs. It was awesome! Not only did I get to see the babies moving around, I got to see one's feet. So, my question is what is the neatest thing you've ever seen when you candled an egg?

    Neat -- this way is a slang usage, means awesome, wonderful, pleasing, appealing, "just right."

    It was when the embryo swam up to my side of the egg and gave me the big EYEBALL. Looked like he was candling ME.

    most interesting or exciting... in my case the most interesting thing I have seen are an embryo's feet

    Sorry... I hope this helps. I forget how many words we have that are actually improper. [​IMG]

    ETA: Farmin: That's hilarious!

    There are all kinds of strange words that people use. It has got to be frustrating trying to read and learn it all when English isn't your first language. I give you props (or compliments) on being able to do so.

    I must agree. I was very excited the first time I saw the babies swimming around in the eggs. It's amazing to be able to watch the growth and development. I wish there was a way to hook a camera into an egg and watch it grow all day and see the subtle changes in it.

    thank you for your compliment.

    the main problem is slang, every region/country have their own slang, and i get strange+weird when try to know some meaning but thanks many willingly to help. [​IMG]

    yap, that's interesting when you see they swim.

    Hey! I google it and found some videos!! These are live chicks being grown in petri dishes. Weird, but amazing!!!
