    Here are my most recent. Not sure what to think. The first one is weird because although its light, I swear there is movement???Maybe my eyes are playing tricks on me. Then the others I am hoping are chicks not just funky blobs, lol. Yep I am a newbie, I admit it!

    Im afraid I cannot see definite signs of fertility in these eggs. I suspect some embryonic development has occured but its looks like a bacterial infection has set in. Please dont break them open to check on my word!!!

    However I would expect to see significant growth of a dark area occupying two thirds of the egg with active supporting blood vessels on day 14.

    Good luck

    dang, I was affraid of that. Is it possible for some reason they aren't developing as fast? I just have to grasp at some hope I will have at least 1 egg hatch. Does it make any difference that these are brown cochin eggs? Thanks!

    No difference due to being brown cochins. Just hang in there. I have posted a thread on the geese section about dewlap toulouse with lots of candling pics and information.

    If you dont suceed then you will learn from experience and get there soon [​IMG]
