    I candled this egg last night and i think it is fertile, but i have had no experience and am not sure, when looking at this pi bear in mind that it is slightly dirty [​IMG] the air cell makes it look developed i think...

    Thanks for the help

    P.S this is quite important as i have 4 other eggs looking like this and they need to either be kept or discarded.

    Do you see any veins or dark spots? That is what I saw with mine. Sometimes it is really hard to see.

    Welcome to BYC!

    If you see veins/cloudiness/mass it's fertile. From the picture, your egg looks fertile.

    Glad you figured this one out!

    I find I have to have the girls candle the eggs, they do much better than I do. Good luck with your hatch.
