    My yolks look like they may be scrambled when I candle. Is this right or is there something wrong with my eggs? I'm on day 7. I had movement yesterday but I had a hard time seeing the embryos today. Any clue?

    There is a lot of veining and once in a while I can see an embryo. There is an aircell and it is getting progressively larger. I don't know if it really is scrambled but there is stuff floating around that looks like the yolk. In some of the eggs, there is no clear areas except for the aircell.

    I thought mjne were scrambled at that stage too, but now I'm at day 17 and they've definately grown!

    just leave them for now and candle again in a few days

    good luck [​IMG]

    Oh okay. Thanks. I got a new flash light (Mini Mag) and looked at one this morning. The embryo is definately bigger and swimming. I could see two parts to it so I'm thinking eye and something else?
