    I'm just curious-Im on day 16 for 3 of my eggs-when I candeled a few days ago-they were moving like crazy-still in the turner right now-what Im asking is when is the earliest youve ever seen an egg move on its own? getting ready to hatch and such? I can't stop staring looking for a twitch-a shutter-something-am I just staring at a wall? LOL..[​IMG] killing me-I was fine till I candeled a week ago!
