    This is my first time hatching and I have no clue what I should be looking for. I did try to compare to the candling forum

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=261876


    However, maybe some of you experienced hatchers can give me an idea if they are doing ok or not.


    I am on day 6.

    Im wondering about the ones that have a definite line where the veining stops. It seems weird. But maybe its ok.... I just have no idea.

    The top ones are definitely coming along okay [​IMG] You would know if they weren't developing, there's a HUGE difference. You can see right through the egg and there's no air pocket, veins.. just nothing.

    Cool thanks!

    Do you know why the veins arent in the whole egg? and they all stop in the same place? Seems weird to me. Looks like there is a definite line in them where everything just stops.

    I think the line you're talking about is the air sac....

    They do that. It's good that they have veins in it at all - you don't need to worry about where they go or where they stop. Veins + air sac = growing birdy!
