    Bought a new incubator today because our hen gave up on three eggs... All fertile..

    But candling them and finding out how old they are is confusing me. A few of our eggs were placed under her at different times, so I need to know how old they all are so I can prepare.

    Can anybody send me pictures of fertilised eggs and tell me how old they are

    Eg. This is a picture of a fertilised egg that is 14 days old

    Thank you :D
