    Please could someone look at these pics of my seabright eggs on day 7 of incubation And tell me if they look okay, because I can't tell, this is my first attempt at using an incubator all my other chicks I have had from 1 day old. Any comments would be great. I have 6 eggs.[​IMG][/IMG]

    Hi there and welcome to BYC!

    Unfortunately, I do not think that egg is fertile. By Day 7 you should see clear veining and a dark spot that indicates eye development. There also doesn't appear to be an air cell in the wider end, but it can be hard to tell from pictures.

    This is an awesome resource for what eggs should look like each of the 21 days: https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/development-of-a-chicken-embryo-day-by-day

    If you think there's a chance that it could be viable then you can certainly put it back in the bator and candle again on Day 10 or 14. Just be sure to check for any bad smells during that time because if it explodes then it can compromise your other eggs.
