    My two mallard eggs are on day 6, the other day I candled them(day 4), and one had a very clear start of viens, the other had nothing yet

    this morning when i candled them, I got alittle worried, they both had little red spots that moved when I moved the egg, but i don't see viens anymore! [​IMG]

    i took pics and circled the spots, I'm hoping someone can calm my nerves,...or make me bawl [​IMG]


    I am getting so excited for my first successful hatch I could explode, i don't want anything to go wrong [​IMG]

    I accidentally dropped a couple of the chicken eggs this morning [​IMG]

    HOWEVER they were not anything in them.

    about when can you deffeinatly tell with chicken eggs, I've heard 7,10,and 14 days.

    with duck eggs I've heard 7 and 10 days to candle, I'm still hoping that my little eggs are ok
