i candled my eggs last night, at 9 days. that is the COOLEST thing i have ever seen!!! i set 9 of my own eggs on dec. 29th, and all but two of them were refridgerated... i had to throw out three of them, two had blood rings, one wasn't fertile, and i saw six little chickies swimming in the other eggs. seeing those little guys swimming around in there eggs was awesome!!! seriously!!! i kept telling dh how cool it was that i helped make the little life in the eggs, and he started laughing at me... he said what in the world are you gonna think when the baby gets here in august?!
