    18 CRACKED,Green Egg, Maybe, airsack, dark mass. Now this egg cracked at 1 week incuabation, so if a dark mass means later development and later demise, then this egg survived the initial crack. Or its a bad egg with airsack and mass of rotten.

    Total: 10 confirmed LIVE eggs [​IMG][​IMG]
    6 Maybes [​IMG]
    2 Died [​IMG]

    I'm going to candle a confirmed live one more time when my dh can video tape it for me [today] and then we go on LOCKDOWN!!![​IMG]

    cool! I LOVE candling eggs! [​IMG]
    I have trouble seeing in certain green eggs I have too.
    I once dropped an egg a few days before lockdown, and it had several many small cracks in it, so i sealed it up by dripping candle wax on it....and it hatched! it was a day later than the others in that batch, but it did hatch
