    Okay-my black australorps are on day 6. Out of pure lack of will and curiosity I candled them.

    On one or two all I could see was a definite ring clear ring around where I guess the air sack is? Does that mean the air sac had burst?

    Only on ONE did I see a definite eye with veins. On a few others (I have 12 total eggs) I saw some viens, but no definite eye yet.

    A couple I just wasn't sure what I was looking at and on one or two I saw clear.

    So what do you all think?

    Wait for 2 more days candle again and toss any you do not see veins in.

    They will rot and may contaminate the others.

    GOOD LUCK :)

    Yes i agree to wait a few more days beore making a decision. I always cull my clear eggs on the 10th day. As far as the ones with a ring goes, if it's not a dark ring usually around the center portion of the egg then it's not a blood ring.

    I never have seen a ring or the air sac so clearly before......I hope its nothing to be alarmed about.
