I candled today - we are at the "less than" home stretch meaning, they should hatch today or tomorrow (at the LATEST) Well, most eggs had what looked like a small black blob in them and not viable. however, a couple were so "dark" that we could not candle them at all. What does that mean? I can understand the ones that we could see the death essentially, but not sure about the total darkness that we saw. It is very sad. Second hatch, gone awry. This time not with the dome but the little giant. We honestly did everything right. Bought our eggs on ebay.
