Quote:hahaha bad girl bad!!!!
It has now been 7 days but i ran into another problem with candling
hear is the one of the eggs i have been debating on for 4 days !
I keep on seeing a black cloudy dot in the bottom in the picture you can see it.
You can also see it in this one to.
Quote:Have you been pulling this egg out everyday? I would totally leave it untouched until day 14-seriously untouched...Since the photo is blurry I cant really tell whats going on but a black dot is typically the baby growing. If you see a black dot a thick red/black line that goes all around the egg-in an un-uniformed mannner-thats a blood ring-but is it veiny with a black dot thats a baby-the egg looks porous-which may or may not hatch-Ive had many pourous eggs hatch but you have to be patient and let the egg cook
I can see a slightly darker area that I think you are referring to. However it's not distinct enough to determine if its a bacterial spot or an embryo. I frequently check our eggs at this period with no problems but do not over-handle them. I candle while I do a daily hand turn to supplement auto-turning.
At the moment I'm unable to see any evidence embryonic growth or blood vessels. The pattern on the shell does make it hard to see though. I would give them a little longer.
Well i was able to get a better picture of the egg.
Do you think it can be a eye?I am hoping
Hear is another picture.I candle them every other day.
Quote:Ok bud...stop candling..seriously..give this batch a break and wait 5 days...yes I said 5 days..if it still looks like that in 5 days then its a dud..embryo died..you can tell the difference from the others ones. They will be dark..that one wont be if its bad sit on your hands...go clean the house..go shopping..whatever it takes..walk away from that bator
Ok thanks.I think I am over obsessing over it too much
Quote:I promise you it will get easier to mellow the heck out with each hatch
This is my first hatch, too, and I admit that's it's pretty darn exciting! I just keep telling myself that it will be more exciting to watch the chicks hatch than it will be to have a dead chick because I can't keep my hands off the eggs. I think it's a curiosity thing, though... I'm right there with ya!
