I just candled at day 10 by holding a flashlight up to the egg without actually holding the egg...I have only 4 eggs that are really light enough to easily see. And I have 4 blood rings. I'm so disappointed. I know that the 20 other eggs could be just fine but 4 of 4 of the light eggs makes me have my doubts. They look like they stopped developing around day 4-8 ish. My husband, always the joker, tried to cheer me up. He is truly convinced I have a black thumb and that I have a tendency to kill things (plants, fish, reptiles). So he wasn't sure this was a good venture anyway. So, today he went to the store and came home with an adorable kitchen floor mat with a rooster and hen on it. Then tells me, its probably the closest thing I'll ever have to a chicken, so he had to buy it for me. It really did cheer me up.
