    Some of you may know that I had some temp issues but worked them out early on. Today was day 4 and I candled my eggs. I know it was early but I found this link which showed what they would look like at day4-5 which is where I am. Please, NONE of my eggs look like these. https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=261876

    Here
    are my eggs. Photos are horrible because I had no flash and they are blurry. All the eggs seem to have the same blig blob in the center or at the end of the egg that moves when you move the egg. No veins or anything. Please look and tell me.

    One is clearly cracked, should I remove it?

    I think I see veins in the first and third pictures. I'd give them a while yet and see what happens.

    Mine looked like that this morning and last night and when I just checked them, I had veins in 2 out of my 3 Americauna eggs that I can see in AND i saw a tiny little heartbeat in one of them....so, my advice is unfortunately be patient, and check them again in the morning, cause in 10 or so hours, mine changed drastically....

    Also, try candling from the side (with the pointy end down), this is what helped me to see the tiny little veins....

    Let me know how it goes...this is my first hatch, so I am not much help, but I just went through this earlier today and last night, LOL

    Leave them in and candle at Day 10 or later. Several factors can slow development.
