I candled my caygua eggs this morning im down to 7 out of 15. Only 2 forsure are alive veined well moving. The third seems to be just a black mass in the middle of the egg no moving just sitting there suspended im leaving it a bit more but i think its just dead at this point. The others appear to have blood spots or smears im not sure what to call them. I just cracked a couple of them open all there was inside was a small blood spot or smear on the yolk? I will add they spent alot of time in mail got frozen etc they had a rough trip to me so even 2 is a blessing if they hatch of course. Im just wondering if the blood spots any chance there actually viable eggs or should i throw them out. And what causes these spots anyhow is it something im doing in incubator or is it from the freezing the rough handling before i got them or what is it i had alot it would seem with the blood spots.
