    Hi

    I have 5 eggs in my incubator and it is day 7. However when I candles them today I could see the start of the air sac but I saw no embryo or veins. Inside there was a dark patch that looked like a yolk. All of my eggs were like this. They are brown eggs. What should I do?

    Thanks

    Tom

    Brown or dark cream colored? I can never see in my brown ones, so I leave them til day 23.

    I can't see in my brown eggs either and I have ruined a few eggs that way so I just leave them until lock-down. Good luck!

    They are light brown like store brought eggs an they man I got them of didn't know how old they were. But I got them for free. I probably won't candle them after this.
