    I am on day 6 of incubation, and i candled some of the eggs. what am i suppose to see in the eggs? some are dark on one side and it looks like an air pocket on the other. One or two have black dots in them. Most of them are just dark on one side and clearer on the other. any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Check the sticky about egg candling.

    But I think you should be seeing some veins but now.

    Some of the eggs have veins in it and others just have that dark blob in it. If anyone knows how to help it would be appreciated. thanks

    some of my eggs look like that with the veins in them, the others look like the yolk on the inside is just there. They dont have veins or anything in them just a yolk being in there.

    dark blob is more then likely the yolk, leave them alone for a few more days and you will be able to see better by day 9 you should be able to see a chick moving, air bubble is good it always goes topside of the egg if you have a turner, clear egg is bad, lots of vains is good
