    I candled tonite the eggs are 7 d in today,all are brown eggs.All had air sacs some have dark ares like a yolk that seems to move as you turn the egg one for sure did not move when you turned it all seem to have some type of yolk present one seemed to have the blood ring maybe? But that one seemed to have something moving in the center of it one 2 are litter brown and easier to see.SO if you see the air sac does that mean they are developing? It is like the ones pictured for 7d.If you incubated a unfertile egg would it form an air sac after 7d?They all look way different than the store bought egg that I canalded that was clear and not air sac

    i dont know if you can see this on brown eggs but are there any veins that lamost resemble a spider? if so then they are developing. i dont know about the yolk moving when you turnit if that means development though. but if you see spider veins then you are in the game!

    All eggs have aircells, fertile or not. Evaporation causes the aircells to get larger reguardless If its fertile or not
