Liz,
If you incubated the egg at around 76-78F your eggs should hatch around 40 days. If your temps are a bit lower add another 10 days or so. However by now you should easily be able to make out the eyes and possibly some twitching. The twitching helps build the embryos muscled tissue. As hatching time approaches even closer the egg will appear to have shadows in it and the head and tail are sometimes visible. It depends on how the embryo is situated. There really is no chart or pictures I know of, just for the fact it can be a hard to do and you also do not want to disturb the egg so much. Be very careful when handling it (donít accidentally turn it you can drown the embryo very easy this late in development) and do not keep the light on it for to long (could over heat the egg). Best of luck.
-Mike
