    Its day 8 and i candled my eggs yesterday and i didn't see one red dot or veins, all i saw in all of them was the same dark colored blob in the middle. Should i stop incubation and get some new eggs or continue to turn them and check at 14 days???

    how did you candle them? I like to use the pen lights you can get in hardware stores.

    Its on one of my older posts. The birds arent even a year old yet so they might not be sexually mature until next year.
