    No, that looks good to me for day 14 of incubation. You're right that it's not easy to see because of a not-so-great picture quality. Maybe it's my imagination, but I think I see some veining along the top. When you're candling, try moving the egg very slowly and gently, and you may see some veining.

    Here's a link to candling pictures that have been very helpful to me: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/...g-candling-pics-progression-though-incubation

    It looks pretty good. As the chick develops and grows the egg will start to appear black inside on candling. Try candling from the bumt end and you may see the chick moving :) (you may not)
