I apologize for changing topic, but I have a question that I have researched but can't seem to find exactly what I am looking for in the "incubation manual":
Do you candle all the eggs you set?
Background - I have 30 eggs incubating I have completed 6 24 hour days. And I candled 10 of them. Some I could see veins right away! Some looked completely "lit up" like nothing had changed. Some had things floating and moving in them like small air bubbles. Some are Welsummers and EEs so I saw NOTHING. And some had darkness to them but no veins. At this point, I got overwhelmed and just walked away.
It just seemed like I needed a giant chart, a deep breath and a time out. Am I suppose to candle all of them or just a portion? Am I the only one that got kinda overwhelmed with this for the first time?!
Thank you in advance for your help and advice. If I need to post elsewhere just let me know. Sorry and thanks!
@mlm Mike - I LOVE the goats. We are building our farm and the goats are a MUST. I haven't fully decided on our goat breed yet (dairy for sure), but your babies are cute, cute, cute. I hope you post many pics for us.
@BantiChooks - Please tell me there is no Goat Math. I have already been hit with chicken math and duck math. And my kids are still to young to help with all this Math... oh my!
