Day 7 candling. A little spider looking thing inside the egg means a chick - little area surrounded by clear veins - and it's good? Um, yeah, so a bright line of red going all the way around the inside of the egg means that's not good, right? And an air cell that still looks like a bubble floating around all over the place in there is most likely also not good at this point, I'm assuming.
This ain't looking real good, folks. Too many blood rings, too many floaty air cells, too few with obvious veining, and some I can't see into well enough to tell much of anything. If this count holds until the end, and all of the ones I think look good at this point hatch, that'll be 9 out of 27. If I take out the ones that have veining to this point, but that I think the air cells will be too much to overcome, then that puts it down to 3. I haven't pulled any eggs because I know they can sometimes fool ya at this stage and I'm simply not experienced enough to make the call. Either that or I just plain don't WANT to make the call....haven't decided that yet either.

She has beautiful birds and she has paints and partridge colored.
Picked them up. Got them unpacked. (Wonderful packing job.) Candled and they are resting. I plan to set them tonight at midnight. This will be my FIRST time hatching shipped eggs, so new experience for me.
