    I should be seeing veins and a fetus after 5 days if the eggs are fertile correct? I got anxious after candling last night, and cracked two. No signs of any veins or anything. Possible fertility problem?

    They were raised together. The group of them just turned a year old recently. I have noticed plenty of mating activity so he might just not be getting the job done.
