    Hi,

    Today is 7 days. I've been having not so consistent temps in the incubator. I candled 15 eggs and 9 were very clear. The other 6 have a dark area. I can't see veins. Does the dark area mean they are viable?

    Are they dark eggs? I had a brown egg that hatched and I could never see any veins, just a dark spot and an airspace. Good luck! [​IMG]

    No, there orp eggs so light brown. The others are just so clear it's pretty obvious they aren't going to do anything and the others are different for sure but don't know if it's my candling or not.

    Well all I can say is I would just let them be---You'll probably be able to tell better later. Better safe than sorry I say. [​IMG]
