    This is my bantam egg on it's 12th day of incubation. I was checking some others and thought I'd look at him\her for...well curiosity's sake. I have 3 other bantams and have never seen so much detail. So obviously one of the groups are not doing well. This one was set on the 20th, the other three were set on the 15th. This is the only one I have seen the spots inside. The rest are just dark masses. I don't think they are any good, however I wasn't ready to give up on them. So this is the pic, please let me know what you think.

    It looks like there's something going on in there...I wouldn't give up on it til it's way past due. I did the same thing a couple weeks ago, thinking I had bad ones...unfortunately when I cracked the first one to make sure, there was a perfectly good developing baby inside :( I put the rest back and am in the middle of hatching :) Good luck !

    Thanks! This one is 5 days behind the others. I can't see any dark spots like eyes in them but I am going to hold out for a little longer just to be sure.
