    With really light eggs, you can see veins at 3 days.

    Check out the stickies or the link in my sig.

    I usually can see them within 60 hours or so.

    We have bantams and I can see good veining at 3 full days.....I would leave it for a few more days to be sure......depending on bator temps...if they are running a little low it may take a little longer to see anything developing....

    I agree with the other posts. Definitely at 5 days you will see some veining.
