    Are my eggs full of bacteria and dead? There is an awful lot of dark stuff in there. [​IMG] This is what they look like on day 14. They are turkey eggs.

    Quote:As far as I know they are just like chicken eggs except that they take 1 week longer to hatch. This is my first time hatching on my own, and my first time all together with turkey eggs. They dont stink at all.

    Quote:I suppose they could be......... I thought that the dark parts were to big to be anything at this point, but I guess halfway through incubation they would be bigger than just a little black blob. I wish it was like an ultrasound. lol.

    Sorry to say, but they don't look good to me. When my chicken eggs look like that they are thrown out.

    I would keep them in there if thats the only ones you have, the worst that could hapen is you have a big mess to clean up if they explode and stink.....The best, well different eggs look different to different people ya know. It could be the way your holding the light or the egg, or the way the 'baby' is positioned in it.
