    Hello!! Please help! My eggs are in an incubator (it is day 6) and when I candle them I see everything except veins!!! Why?? Is it normal? I have 7 eggs. Also, if I am out and my chicks hatch, will they die inside the incubator? My incubator is very small. [​IMG]

    Alright [​IMG]

    I think I have seen this before [​IMG]

    So I will ask you if you see anything at all even a little spot that would be the creation of the heart [​IMG]

    Next please join the April Hatch-Along just type it in the search box at the top of the page and jump right in and you will find others who use the smaller incubators and you will receive lots of guidance along the way to becoming the happy owner of a box of chicks [​IMG]

    You should have plenty of room as the egg shells will be plenty bridle come hatch time [​IMG]

    BYC has a candling thread - that shows what you would see at certain days. If you put "Candling chart," in the search box I think it would come up. I have never incubated eggs so can't be of any help. Sorry.
