Could use a little advice!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So out of the original 13 I have two left that passed the float candling test. One is just rolling I can see little claws when I touch the candling light to it. The other one passed the float test but... When I candle the egg it seems like there's not a ton in there. There is definitely something but for an egg that was started in the same day as the other it concerns me. Any thoughts?

When you do the float test, they need to float and wiggle to know for certain that it's alive.  That bottom one looks like a clear to me and the top one looks like it has had growth, but that pic doesn't really look like a term egg and I don't see any veining either. Could be the pic, but it doesn't look like a hatcher from here. It easier to tell though if you candle down from the top more instead of from the side. 

Need help incubating/hatching? Are you more a hands on hatcher? Come visit us: http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/1081034/hands-on-hatching-and-help

So I did it from the top and bottom I seen few veins in the darker one but none is the other. Maybe it died early? How long should u wait for movement?
