    Yeah its me again. Day 15 and threw out 3 more eggs, for a total of 5 eggs thrown out. I cracked them open too and just yolk, no embryo development at all :0(

    What exactly should I be seeing at day 15? Even in hard to candle eggs (araucana eggs) you'd think you'd see SOMETHING. There were only 2 eggs where I could see dark shadow or something. No movement but something. With only 6 days to hatch date, you'd think I'd see something more assuring if something was going on right?

    All you see is a big dark blob in the bottom. Welcome to hatching trauma. It's some kind of torture we put ourselves though for some strange reason. Oh yeah, we love the fluffy butts. [​IMG]

    Day 7 you should have seen veins and the eye 14 a black mass with movement and 18 the chick should be taking up almost all the egg and have some movement you can detect.....
