    So today is like day 11/12 since it's midnight here, and I'm excited and figured since I was turning that I'd sneak a candle....[​IMG]
    Any way Last time I looked there were veins and a happy dancing floating chick in there. Tonight I just looked at few cause I'm really supposed to wait till Sunday/Monday.
    At first I was worried because it was all shadowy dark and I though something was wrong so I smelled it (lol) nothing wrong there so I looked at different angles and I've come to the conclusion that I should be very super excited because that means there's a growing happy chick in there! Right?
    So It's late and didn't want to frighten family by screaming in extreme happiness so I'm letting the all the night owls on here know!! This is soo fun! I'm going to hatch eggs for the rest of my life!!!![​IMG]

    What I do is look from both the top and the bottom with the light. Most times you can't see much from looking in from the bottom with the light. You can see WAY more from the top or 2 o clock area. Have fun! I LOVE the candling part of hatching [​IMG]
