    It's really hard to tell with those pics. Do you see any veining at all? If you candle by shining your light down into the egg from the air cell end it should give you a little better view. Also you might want to check this out for comparision, (just note they are bantam eggs and easier to see into) https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/...g-candling-pics-progression-though-incubation

    As for the green eggs, I can't see into mine either. If you have a powerful enough candler you have better chances, but I use a decent flashlight and still can't see more than my air cell and a vein here or there.
