    20180321_201926.jpg 20180321_202104.jpg I got 4 eggs from my cousin that owes a egyptian duck, goose, (not sure). And he said he had them for 1 week but he says he isnt sure. I put them in a homemade incubator (I'm getting a good incubator soon). I candled the eggs but I can't tell. I can send more pictures if anyone needs them.

    No veining? Or clear veins ? At day 7 there should be movement or veins at least?

    Movement is always a good sign the shadowing seems to show an embryo keep incubating and see what happens

    3rd egg was fertile, but quit early from the looks of it... distinctive red bloodring indicates early embryo death...

    Egyptians are geese, and typical goose eggs are more finicky to incubate than duck eggs... I suggest reading up on how to incubate goose eggs for optimal success...

    By the way, i drew in the eggs with red marker to know when to turn them. (There picture there is a circle that's the marker, sorry for not mentioning this earlier)
