    I just candled my eggs and took a picture. Is this what it should look like?

    I'm worried they may be bad and I don't want one to explode.

    I candled all 7 eggs and everyone has a spot inside and is moving! I can see veining pretty good but not real clear. It does have the spider kind of look though. It's pretty amazing that they are all alive and they move as much as they do. Some seem a little bigger than others. I'll try to get a picture tonight when it gets dark.

    Give it a few more days and check again. Sure looks bigger than a yolk alone, and that's no "yoke"![​IMG]

    There could be a baby in there I guess , it looks infertile but when in doubt keep it for another week ,
    Do all your eggs look like that?[​IMG]

    I candled a few days ago.. broke one... geeeshhhh..

    The dark area was much smaller then. I thought it was the yolk. It's bigger on all of them now.

    If they turn rotton, when do they explode? That is something I really want to avoid.

    Dont throw it out unless you are sure, I had the same question and everyone said just give it time. After a few days I cracked open the ones that I thought were infertile. Luckily they all were infertile this time. I had one blood ring that I left longer then the infertile, and cracked that open too. Give it a few days but Im pretty sure its infertile [​IMG]
