So it's day 3 and i just candled a few of the eggs and noticed that everytime i flipped the egg over, the yoke would float to the top. Is this normal? I did notice veils growing.

Also in one, i did not see anything but in another i only saw a yoke with no veins. Does this mean the one with nothing is infertile and there is still hope for the other?

Generally I don't check for definite fertility until day 7. Mine are all brown though. Better chance for signs at a later date.

As to the yolk, I really never pay attention. I just always look for veins and toss out blanks at a later candle. Someone should be able to give you an answer on the yolk topic.
