Can anyone tell me what day of incubation this egg is on?

Moving can happen close to hatch time or right at. Candling will tell you more than a float test(honestly I never use float test)... see if the air cell has tilted drastically to one side, the higher end might show a bulge too... that would mean it is definitely 'lockdown' time and hatch is imminent (within 2 days or so)...

Guess I am having issues watching vids on here, sorry... some more info might help, though... what kind of egg and what's the story with it?

Your hand is blocking part of the egg, so its hard for me to judge how full the whole egg is, but that much darkness would have to be at least 8-10 days.

Also what kind of egg? Chicken, duck?

Sorry guys! It's a chicken egg. I had a hen start sitting and she gave up on it. I'm not sure how lomg she was sitting on it but I saw that it had started developing so I'm incubating but not sure how far along. I had to hold it like that to get the best view inside the egg. I was just using a flashlight to candle. :/
Yep, I'm thinking about 10ish days. Good luck!!

The egg is now mostly black. Not much to see. The video above was taken a few days before posting here. I can still see little flutters when candling. I tried the water test and the little chick inside was really moving. Lol Doing great so far! I hope the little chick continues to do well! :fl
