    When I set eggs, if I set them in the bator in the morning hours I count that as day 1. When set in the afternoons or evenings the next day is counted as day 1. Hope this helped.

    It's nice to see the veining and the embryo when you candle for the first time!!

    Day 7 for me and we candled last night. We have veins AND little heartbeats AND little eyes and they are just moving and swimming. so cute and sweet even if you aren't a first timer. i am amazed each and every time. to know that life can come from an egg. just shows God's wisdom, IMO. My kids just love it and would love to candle every day. [​IMG]
