    SO one of my Jersey Giants went broody and so i gave her 20 eggs to sit on, (all collected on the same day) And locked her in the lil' house she chose to nest in. curiosity took over me and i went to candle the eggs knowing i wouldnt see anything on day 4 and lo-and behold one of the eggs started to form the 'spiderweb' blood veins , i might just be over reacting but will this effect the egg's hatch rate? sounds a bit stupid to ask but just want to be on the safe side ya know?

    You have development. In lighter colored eggs you can usually see development by day 3. I almost always can tell by then what is fertile and what is not. Here's one of my candling pics for the first 5 days of a hatch last year. This is typical for what I see in my lighter eggs. [​IMG]
