candling/hatching question - Page 2
You start counting the day after. Today is Day 9. :)
Has it always been all dark? Does it just have a really thick or colored shell that you can't see through as well? Does the egg smell bad?
This is the one I was saying I couldn't see thru.
This one I'm thinking is a not alive.
This one I was curious about. It has a blood vein running around the egg that you can see at the top, but it has something red just floating around in it.
Closer up pic of the red "blob" floating around in the egg.
Can you see any sign of red blood vessels around the edges of the darkness in the first egg when candling? It does look similar to how they look when about ready to hatch, or an egg that has died very late in development. Are you sure this isn't a much older egg that has been incubated for longer than you were aware? Very odd for an egg that's only been incubated 10-11 days to look like that.
And I agree with nchls school, second egg pictured looks as if it has died.
Does the little red blob in the third egg swim around in there when you're candling (does it move on it's own when you are holding the egg still)? It looks like a little embryo in there for sure. Whether or not it is still alive is the question.
