    So I have no idea how I got to the area where I can post I always have a hard time finding the posting area LoL.
    I have 3 dozen road Island red eggs (day 11) along with 6 of my own eggs in my incubator. Almost all the eggs look very pores with only 3 that do not. All these eggs are medium brown in color of good size. I am only seeing vains in one egg when candling. The others look simulur to the good egg except the spot is a bit darker and the dark area seams almost cloudy have these eggs died.

    I got the road island red eggs at the local action so I could test my new incubator before paying 30 a dozen for Orpington eggs. The remain 6 eggs were from my own coop I would go out in the morn then put those eggs in the fridge. I then checked ever hour or so for fresh eggs and only kept the 6 larges over the next week. I have 2 rooster (from last years broody hen) over 4 hens. so I know they were furtail. I was wonder if the cold weather might have cased the eggs to be more pores. or if this could have some how happend in the icubator.

    I know have 12 duck eggs from the last 2 weeks that I would really like to put in the incubator if these eggs are no good they wont be viable for much longer.

    A big thanks to every one.

    So when I went through the chicken eggs again it looked like 5 of the eggs had died so I pulled those and layed a 6th in the divided area in the middle. I will Just keep checking on the eggs, I am planing on adding new duck eggs to the incubator every week. Thankfully I have a second incubator (a foam one) for lock down. I am still wondering if the pores eggs will hatch and what cases the eggs to be so pores.
