    ok i candled my eggs this morning as i do every morning (i know im not supposed to but cant help it) anyway one of them has 4 dark spots that are sort of connected in a line? its hard to explain it looks like one of those dot-to-dot puzzles lol, i thought any dark spots were bad news and it meant the embryo had died but it is still actually moving, and so are the 4 dark spots, which arent even connected to the embryo? does anybody have any idea what this could be?

    im on day 20 incubating indian runners if that helps thanks!

    If it's still moving I say let it be!

    Good luck! Can't wait to see the babies!

    you have to stop candling. I know its hard but it will just drive you crazy if you analyze every little spot. Believe me, I know!
