One of the eggs in my little batch is not growing like the rest of them, I have heard about late bloomers and so on, but how can you tell if its its a dud verse a late hatcher?
The eggs I have all have a dark chick center, but this one is pretty clear and I don't see any veins?

I waited 24th day to hope they will hatch. ( they were fully formed but died) Not sure how I lost them, but temps makes it tricky. I am trying again for the second time.

Day 15 and clear with no veins is definitely a dud.

Here is a link to a really good page with candling pics for each day of incubation. Right now the pics are missing due to the forum move but I bet they get it fixed really quick

I've been waiting for that page to be put back together too... I've been using it to compare the progress on our eggs because it's so good. Hopefully the pictures will magically appear soon!
