Always wait on those. Blood rings will turn brown and the inside of the egg will go more of a white color. Often veins will look odd and then resolve into good looking veins and embryo.

:D I agree, it is always best to leave it in there a few more days until it's definite!

Megadoses of the fat soluble vitamins can be toxic.
Chickens that forage outside all day AND are fed a complete feed should have sufficient D in their systems.

The advantage of oyster shell is that the large particles stay in the upper digestive tract longer allowing them to reach the calcium absorption sites in the small intestine at night when the egg is normally in the shell gland.

Well, now I'm confused. I give layer feed, oyster shell, kitchen scraps 1-2X per week, and I put DE in the feed to act as a daily dewormer...oh, and I always include crushed egg shells in their kitchen scraps, just FYI. What am I doing wrong? They are also free range, from about 9 every morning till 5pm.

  Nice info!  I'm thinking someone is missing their BYC Educator Badge.  Yep.
