    When candeling an egg, if the dark blob in the egg moves as you are turning it (always floats to the top) is that a bad egg?

    On what day are you candling the eggs? I usually do my first candle on day 10. You should see some veining.

    I candled eggs as early as day 4 in this current hatch and saw bribing in quite a few. Candled on day 7 (today) and 90% of my 50+ eggs show bribing. I'm done candleing for a while now! [​IMG]

    Quote:Probably. It depends on how it looks compared to the others and which day of incubation you're on. If there is no veining, then there is no life.
