    I am trying to hatch a few eggs from my backyard flock, and noticed that these two eggs look different from the others. Is this what they call a blood line? And if so, how long should I try to wait before taking them out of the incubator? I don't want to risk harming the others. Thank you!

    Hi and welcome to BYC - thanks for joining us. I'm certainly no expert when it comes to incubating eggs, but if the perceived blood line moves when you rotate the egg, it could be ok. If it doesn't, then it may not be. Having said that, I'd strongly suggest that you post on the "incubating and hatching eggs" forum - for expert advice.

    Good luck

    G’Day from down under Rk024129 [​IMG] Welcome!

    Sorry, no candling experience here but I do hope that the folks on the Forum CTKen gave you a link to were able to help. Good luck with the hatch.

    I also hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
