i set eggs on 2/26/12. last night i tried to candle some of them. i have dark shelled eggs so i knew i probably wouldn't see much but i am very discouraged. i have looked on the internet and haven't seen any eggs that look like mine did. they are in an egg turner so i candled from the bottom/small side of the egg. there is a dark mass in the top portion of the egg and clear liquid/space beneath. also, i can't seem to discern where the air sac is. Should i be worried? am i jumping the gun? my wife says i should be patient and wait until they are over 7 days, or even better to wait until at least 14 days, but i don't want any exploding eggs. please give me any thoughts that you may have. if my description of the eggs sounds normal or if i should pitch them and start again. these are eggs that my hens have laid and a neighbor of mine has hatched chicks out of them already (she set much earlier than me) she did not candle hers so i have no basis to go on. HELP ME PLEASE!!
