    Hey!
    I've posted numerous threads about this--- I just need to be sure. Can someone explain this? Fertile? Developing? What's that dot? I can see... Veins?
    It's hard to see the veins on the photos. Ignore the pen, I made the idiotic mistake of using one instead of a pencil. There is a black dot...?

    If you can see distinct veins, the eggs are fertile and developing.

    There are egg candling charts on BYC, that show what you can see at certain days of incubation. I've answered your other thread that way.
