    Ok i know i said i wouldn't candle till day 7 but it's going on day 4 and 5 for the eggs i have now in my bator and you can see a chick embryo from day 3 and up and my sister was over and she wanted to see anyway..lol

    So here it is.......

    Lisa * Dipsy Doodle Doo*

    All the frizzle eggs have chicks [​IMG]

    only one green NN egg has a chick - the other one blood ring

    ......................

    Tori * Mrs. AK-Bird-Brian *

    4 of your eggs are iffy's the rest had blood rings

    ..............

    Charlie * Wilds of Pa *

    3 of your buff silkie eggs are iffy's the rest had blood rings

    i didn't candle any of the bobwhite or pheasant eggs i'll just let them go an hope for the best [​IMG]

    .............

    Now all the eggs that have blood rings i left them in the bator i'll recheck on day 7 just to be sure but i'm already sure theres nothing cuz Lisa eggs you can see a chick with the eyes and there moving.... but i'll leave the blood ring eggs in till day 7 [​IMG]

    No worries here as i already and knew all the eggs wouldn't hatch.. thats just the risk you take [​IMG]

    ........

    and plus i have another box coming with eggs from Tori [​IMG]

    i just wanted to let ya know what was up as i promised [​IMG]

    That can be deceiving, Mark... hold off on tossing them until day 14. Well, unless they're weeping. What looks like a bloodring could just be the vein system starting... I've tossed some that looked like that and regretted it... [​IMG] I'm glad you kept them!

    ...and, don't forget 4 of them were the experiment eggs... the ones with the "R" on them were refrigerated for at least a week, and one was waxed because it was cracked. [​IMG] But you have 8 more coming, fresh, that haven't been through all that, so [​IMG]

    I know not to throw them away this early..lol

    thats why i'll recandle on day 7 by then there might be some chicks in them and if they still look iffy i'll keep them for another 7 days but if it looks the same by them then there out..

    i do that with all my chicken eggs [​IMG]
