So when I candle a fertilized egg on day 2 I will see the heart and veins right?
No. Here is what mine looked like:
Day 1 - shadow of the yolk
Day 2 - shadow of the yolk, floats a bit up as gently rotated
Day 3 - shadow of the yolk looks more spread out and moves quite slowly
Day 4 - first blood island with minor veining
Day 5 - larger red spot with greater veining
A black dot will appear (the eye)
by day 8 I could see all embryos moving (harder in dark shells)
Have you checked out the egg candling pics on here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/...g-candling-pics-progression-though-incubation
Great pics that show what a developing egg will look like each day.
Thanks that really helped!
