Candling

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I tried candling my egg but nothing moved. Much space was taken up though and there were veins? Is it still alive? I also tried the water trick and ALMOST half was sticking out. Is it a good living embryo? Will it survive? This is my first time hatching an egg please help!!

What day are you on in incubation? Towards the end of incubation the eggs becomes pretty full of chick so movement becomes harder to see.

Check out these candling pics in this link ~ http://www.backyardchickens.com/web/viewblog.php?id=230

There's a lot of black when I candle and then like there's enough room for a pen to fit then there's the air pocket. There are veins. I would submit a pic but it won't let me

You may just need a few more posts before you can add a pic.

How many days has the egg been incubated?
