I think my eggs are doing ok

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
This is day 6 for our 4 Serama eggs. Our little bantam Cochin has been a champ, in fact we have to lock her away from them a couple times a day so she will eat/drink/poop😍

We decided to candle today and each egg had a large dark area and a smaller light area which I marked on the shell. Since this is our first time, I checked online and it from the pics I saw I think we have chicks growing!

Am I right? We also candled an unfertilized egg to see any difference and it was clear, no dark areas at all so I'm hoping we r good.

I'd appreciate feedback and advice if necessary.

Thanks!

Here's a thread I think will help you to know what you are looking at. It's got pics day 1-18.

Yikes, now I'm worried because I don't see all that veining. But I'm not seeing into the eggs that clearly either. Just basically just light and dark. Maybe my candler isn't strong enough. I hope 😟

I wouldn't worry too much. Some eggs are harder to see inside.

Some days you just have to put on the hat and remind them who they are dealing with. Release the flying monkies!
