Incubating eggs day 8 results

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have been incubating these since the 5th and here are some more results and better pictures hopefully.
This is the rode island red egg


This is another egg that is a astralorp egg I believe, I am worried about the big thick vien that is visible.



And this is the jersey giant egg it seems to be developing slower?



Also since it is day 8 if any of the eggs weren't developing ir are dead wouldn't they smell bad or have exploded by now? Thanks in advance.

First three pictured are quitters. You can see a definite blood ring and no active veining or embryo. The next two I can't tell from the pic. Doesn't look like any activity, but I can't see well enough and the last three are clears, so they were either infertile or just had no growth develop.

 

No, it is very rare to have an egg explode. Occaisionally you'll get a stinker, but those are few and far in between too.

Need help incubating/hatching? Are you more a hands on hatcher? Come visit us: http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/1081034/hands-on-hatching-and-help

We left our lone infertile in until lockdown. We also had a couple that looked like the middle ones. They all hatched so leave it in until it is obvious one way or the other. The obvious blood rings are quitters as has been pointed out.

The first and second egg looks fertile to me but the last one I don't think is fertile:(

 

I never had an egg explode. I just leave all my eggs in the incubator until about 2-3 days after the others hatch just to be safe.
