Ok hi all. I just went outside and candled my standard cochins eggs. I have a bright LED flashlight. Well when I held the LED flashlight up against the egg it was black on the inside. They are on day 19 mind you and I was just wondering what the black means. DOES IT MEAN I HAVE CHICKS!!!????!?!?!?!?!?!? IF THATS THE CASE THEN I SHOULD HAVE A 100% HATCH RATE. and also in the bator all my eggs have veining in them and so does one of my other broodies eggs. (theres 6 of them) PLEASE TELL ME THE BLACK MEANS I HAVE CHICKS. I CAN SEE A LITTLE BIT OF VEINING BUT IM STILL NOT QUITE SURE .(ITS AT THE END OF THE BLACK) IF IT IS A CHICK THEN IM GONNA BE SO HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! REMEMBER THE ONES IM ASKING ABOUT ARE ON DAY 19!!!
