Hi,
Another question, Sorry!


When you first get eggs do you ever candle them to see if there is an air sack?

If when you are candling them you cannot see an airsack, do what?

We candled some, thought we saw bloodrings but have left in, they are not smelling or anything but we candled again and now I am not sure at all.....

You should be able to see the air sac at the large end of the egg...

It's on the left in this pic:



And this pic is what a blood ring looks like:



Really, you should be able to find that air sac within a day or two of incubation. But if no smell, no harm in letting stay.
