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

Sounds like it's making progress that is exciting. Just remember they take a long time to hatch so don't get impatient and think you need to help.

Have never tried to raise an egg and candle from inception to incubation in all my years of chickens... this is an awsum post! Thank You @Chantel93, can't wait to see the baby!
I have a real easy way to make a sturdy, handsfree candler for even those without a bunch of tools. If you are interested just p.m. me, I will go take a few pics and measurements for ya...

I just wanted to thank you all for your help and support. She looked like a perfect little healthy chick I just don't know why she didn't hatch. We are thinking about making a new and improved incubator and giving it another go. This was not a planned incubation as I explained before our hen stopped sitting on the eggs so the "incubator" definitely could have been better. My 2 (almost 3) year old was so excited for it to hatch. He called it his baby egg and he was always telling it he loved it. It's so so so sad. I just can't help but blame myself for whatever went wrong. :(Again thank you all.

:hugs :hugs

You tried and gave it a chance, more than it would have had if you hadn't tried... that's in no way 'doing something wrong'... glad you are going to plan out and try again... you'll get chicks the next time, you'll see...

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. :/

The egg has started to shake! I'm guessing it's roughly 18 days incubation?
