Can you still see veins after the chick has died?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have eggs in my incubator that I am not quite sure what day they are on. I have a friend that brought a ton of turkey eggs and a few chicken eggs to add to my eggs. So far I have 3 that have hatched and 3 on the way. This egg looked about as far along as the others when I candled it. Now I'm thinking it should be hatching soon. I candled it and I saw veins but I didnt see any movement. I didnt take a long time candling because I dont really know how far along it is. 

 

Thank you guys!

This is an awesome website that shows an egg candled every day throughout incubation (until lockdown).  This is the link for day 1 and at the end of each page is a link for the next day.  Compare those to what you can see in your egg.  It's important to figure out an estimate of when they will hatch so that you can put the eggs into 'lockdown' so that the humidity is sufficient to allow for successful hatching.  She also has a page explaining lockdown and everything you need to do.
