    I just candled my Day 6 incubator of 24 Silkies, Polish, and Hudan.

    Threw away 7. [​IMG] Three had blood rings, two looked infertile, two looked scrambled. These were White Crested black Polish, white silkies, buff silkies, and Blue. [​IMG]

    There are three others in the incubator that I moved to the "Suspicious" tray.

    Throwing out that many is a perfect example for my husband on why I start out with so many.

    I havent candled the Day 8 and 9 eggs- they are the blue eggs, and the button quail. With the blues, I have little luck on seeing in them until later.

    edit to add:

    I just tried to candle those- and really, I could only tell one was good. Sure hope I am wrong, because that would be very very sad.

    I'll keep my fingers crossed [​IMG] I bet it's pretty hard to see into those eggs. Don't give up hope yet.
