candling pics?

  1. Can anyone point me to candling pics of brown eggs at 7 and 14 days, please? Can't seem to find any specifically brown egg pics. Thanks!

  3. Thanks! So no veins are visible at this stage? Well, at least not the spidery ones like later, right?

    Yes, you can see veins. Did you click on each picture? It makes them larger.
     
  6. I did, but a lot of them seem to just show a dark spot. A few have a couple veins in them. Do you see more veins over time?

    I'd say you see the most veins about Day 9-10 then the chick starts filling up more of the egg. Depends on how dark that egg is, of course, and how bright your candler is.
