store bought eggs help - Page 2
hi i bought eggs from whole foods (fertile) and i made a homemade incubater and when i candeled the eggs you can see the veins (today is day 11 there supposed to hatch on the 25th) so i need lots of tips on what to do and i will keep everybody updated and also what breed do whole food eggs become and they only moved once so what does that mean
these are the eggs i would've candeled them and show you a picture but their brown eggs so hard to see plz help me I'm totally lost.
I always have brown eggs to candle and they are hard oto see inside.
You may have better luck if you have a 200 lumen LED flashlight .Wont be super clear but you can see some movement sometime and veins sometimes .
At day 11 they should look about 2/3 dark i if there is a baby chick
First timer i think i wouldnt throw any out unless you can see light all the way thru every part of the egg unless they stink If they smell bad ... they ARE Bad no baby OR if they leak .NO BABY
.Sometime it can fool you and there is a baby anyway in some eggs why i say I wouldnt throw any out unless really sure
SET your humidity at 65-70 starting day 18 and dont open the bator or you might shrink wrap the chicks beofre hatch and they will die.
To get humidity that high you may have to put a very wet washriag in the bottom as open as you can and if you have a hole you can add water thru use astraw or fish tank tubing to get water in on the rag to keep it wet. you dont want to open day 18 til hatch REMEMBER...The hunidity will go up according to how much SURFACE water there is NOT DEPTH of water
~~~~~~To any one..I have a quesiton myself ....Dont Leghorns lay white eggs? Are there brown egg laying Leghorns.? Or what do they use commercially?~~~~~~~~

No someitme you can see some veins up until hatch if you get the right angle and no not a late comer they all should hatch within 2 t o3 days of each other if you set them all at the same time.
