    I got 14 guinea eggs from B Saffles Farms. 11 eggs have veins and 3 are clear. I think this is just great on shipped eggs.
    I also have 7 chicken eggs in the bator all 7 have veins. I got a leghorn roo and a hen(not sure the breed) from Vcomb for my grandson he could not wait for the chicks to grow. I understand his impatience [​IMG]

    ruthie, that's great. I'm glad you posted this because after reading it, it was like a light bulb went off. I candled one egg last night (day 4) and all I saw was what I thought was the yoke floating. I candled a egg in the fridge and it was clear. I don't know what it was about your post that pointed out what I was looking at but, thank you. good luck.

    Good luck to you. I know a lot of people candle earlier than day 10 but I usually can't seen anything until day 8 or after. I guess it just takes practice. WOW! another reason to buy more eggs [​IMG]
