    I'm hatching a few EE x Partridge Rock eggs, and one has 2 dark blobs in it. One is definitely an embryo, is the other one an embryo as well? They're the same size. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    Note- it was NOT there at the beginning of incubation.

    It might help if you were to take a photo of the candling and share it here -- often a little photo manipulation can make things a lot clearer as to what you're seeing.

    Okay, thanks [​IMG] I will go get a picture. The shell is green so it's kind of hard to see but I'l see if I can get a good picture.

    Not a great angle (they look exactly the same, but this shows that there are indeed two blobs) but here you go.
