    This is my first time hatching, and when I candled I saw little chicks in 3 of them, and one of them has just two veins that I can see. The other 3 are just clear....... is there any chance of any of the clear ones, or the one with the two veins, hatching? [​IMG]

    The ones that are clear dont have much chance of developing - in fact I'd say none but others on the forum would recommend waiting till 14 days. The one with 2 veins is difficult to call and should be given more time. A picture would help if you can get one but if they are active blood vessels then it is fertile.

    At day 12 I'd toss any clears. The one with two veins though I'd leave in if you're certain it's not a blood ring.
