    Here's a link that might help: http://lancaster.unl.edu/4h/Embryology/candling.shtml

    Look
    towards the bottom of the article that says "WINNERS". It gives a description of what you should be able to see in the egg around Day 7. If you click on the link to the pic, you'll see a pic of an egg that has the characteristics of the description. Hope that helps. [​IMG]

    hi,
    basically in the first couple of days you should see small clusters of veins by day 7-10 you should see a shadow of where the developing chicken is.
    i am new to incubating but a lil research go's far lol hope it all turns out for you [​IMG]
