Our First Egg Candling!

We candled our eggs for the first time tonight.  It was awesome.  We could see the teeny tiny chicks (which look like black spots at this point). In some of the eggs, if we held the egg really steady, we could see the little chickie moving.

If you look closely at this picture, you can see one of our babies (black spot). 

 We are on Day 7 of incubation, and I have to admit that I was pretty nervous to candle tonight....what if all we saw was a whole lot of nothing!?  Thankfully, the little ones seem to be growing and healthy.  2 more weeks until hatching!

We will likely candle them again next week, and hopefully we'll see more progress.  Stay tuned!
