but it is said that turning isnt as important the last 7 days so to lock down early is not bad

Ok, it's settled. I'll lockdown on the middle day for those 3. Thanks, everybody!

I'm candling today. I can't wait anymore and it's day 5, so I might be able to see something. I can't wait for it to get dark do I can try it!!! Good luck with that whole patience thing...I suck at it! Lol

That's a pity, I was following and hoping.
My local TJs and the one in central Philadelphia don't sell fertilized eggs. But my local GIANT does sell big brown fertilized eggs. Now I'm not so sure I want to gamble on a 3rd box of 12 to see if I can hatch any.

I'll keep checking the numbers on the boxes though. And if they're within a week I'll throw some in the 'bator

I am going to pick up some fertile eggs from whole foods to test for fertility. If they do well I can see about getting some for you next time I go to see my Mom in Shingletown--likely the week after Christmas.
Fellow Nor Cal person! Awesome! Yes, keep me posted on what you find!
A great bunch of laying hens - rocks, 'lorpes, orps, EEs, etc, plus our newest grow-outs: Bieles, BCM, CLs,

Ok, so I'm pretty sure I suck at candling...couldn't figure out which way to turn the egg...but I got a kinda decent pic of the one that I could barely see a couple little veins in. It doesn't show up super well in the pic. It's right about in the middle. Can you see them?

That's good ole #7. Had faith in that one from the beginning, and as of now, it's the only one that I am willing to guess is developing so far. Hopefully when I candle again on Friday (day 7) I'll have some more definitive answers.
Also, quick question...I don't know if you can see them, but I saw these whitish little steaks that I thought were veins at first and wasn't sure what they are. Can anyone tell me? They kinda look like stress fractures or something. Is it normal? Pretty much all the eggs had these (they're at the bottom near the air cell, mostly):


ETA: Can any of you pros see something I might've missed? I'd love to know what you guys think!
