    Good for you! [​IMG] It's really hard to see in there... I just gave up. It's like not knowing the sex of a baby before it's born. You just wait for the surprise. [​IMG]

    When are yours due to hatch?
    I am on Day 14 now. I think I am going to move them from the incubator to the hatcher today.

    I candled mine, too- could only see inside the cracked ones. (didnt know they were cracked when they went into the turner)- except for one. I saw veins in one. The other remaining eggs were too dark to see inside.
