    So I have been unsure of one of the eggs from the 14 that I have left. I went and candled it and it was a small shadow about the size of your pinky finger w/no veins at all. It is not moving but I know that does not mean anything. I waited and I candled from both ends and it just looks like a small blob that never developed. Hmmmmm:confused:

    The other 13 eggs look like they are taking up half the egg and they have loads of veins and are moving like crazy, so I think this one might be a
    dud, or just died earlier on.

    Anyway I am so excited about puting them in the hatcher soon!!!!!!! So very very excited!
    I want to see fluffy butts!!

    Hope everyone is having a good day [​IMG]

    Good hatches to you all!!!

    Tsagirl - that one does sound like it died early on in incubation. I would remove it, especially if it is clearly underdeveloped compared to the others. Good luck with your hatch.

    I agree with Jody-anything that appears vastly different at this stage of the game probably should be removed.

    That's how my whole last batch was. They all did that except for one, and I think I gave up on that one too early. [​IMG]
