    I am expecting them all to be daed at this point because no cheeping or pipping or moving whatsoever. But when candling them, if I don't see veins then is it dead? Or are they maybe just being hidden?

    If you are talking about chicken eggs If you dont see movement Id start opening them up from the air cell just in case they are alive.
    Good luck

    With chicken eggs you shouldn't see veins at this point--they should be solid chick in there. With ducks I would say the same. Even geese should be nearly full of baby by now. You might see a little veining, I guess, but I doubt it.

    I cracked them open using my further judgement and brown decaying goo came out so they were dead but I'm trying again and again until I get some peepies! [​IMG]

    What kind of bator are you using? What was your temperature?

    It is the homemade incubator from MissPrissy's post. And the tmep was 95 to 104 because the thermostat sucks. and the humidity stayed around 40 to 50 percent.
