I understand. I had never actually seen a basement until I moved to MS...

Some I could see veining, but most I determined were not clear bc I could see abnormal "blobs/shadows" in the egg vs mostly clear round yoke.
On another note, my few day old silkies are in the brooder with a heat pad hut. I really hope they are staying warm enough. They spend a lot of time huddled under it, but I have it at full blast and they seem ok. Anyone had issues with heat pad brooders not being warm enough?
Wow... that's a lot of clears. Sorry to hear that. Having fertility problems, perhaps?
I have a heat pad cave that I use when my chicks get a couple of weeks old, but if it's any consolation, my day olds spend most of their time huddled under the heat plate (Sweeter Heater), too. As long as they're quite and aren't chirping loudly, then they should be nice and toasty.
