    Okay, I decided to candle 3 eggs on Day 5. I let them be for Day 4.

    This is what I got from One of the eggs inside

    i circled the dark spot in the egg. Good spot? Bad Spot? Two eggs had this dark spot inside the egg...at least.

    When I opened the incubator and picked out the lightest colored egg, I found this:

    I highly don't remember seeing those spots on the egg. I put it back into the incubator away from the rest until someone can
    identify. I clearly remember these spot were NOT on the egg when I put it in.

    Here's another candled egg

    i think the dark spot in this one is a little easier to see.

    *** just candled all 12 eggs...all 12 eggs have dark spots. but 1 of the dark spots is smaller then the rest....Eeek. I marked them all 1 through 12... Egg 7 is the one with the small dark spot. i will candle day 7 or 8.

    IMO they don't look fertile..? I could see very distinct veining by day 3-4 with all of my eggs.

    Hey so it's 6:41pm and I got home around 6pm and decided to candle them again.
    They all still have that dark spot, but i noticed at least in two of them has small red vains and one has a red vain circle...
    however they ALL have an air pocket.

    Since they all developed an air pocket, does that mean they are going to be good?
    or even bad eggs (porous) develope the air pocket at the pointy end?

    I believe they all get an air pocket, the one with the red vein circle is probably a blood ring :(

    I don't think it's a ring... i doubled check that egg and i didn't notice a ring.
    i wish i had a better camera that would take pictures in the dark of the egg. hmm..
