    ok so i have 19 eggs im plaing to incubate... i was curious so i candled them.. i have looked at the candling page with the pics and i find myself inconclusive... there were several eggs with dark patchs on the big end and #7 i could see the yolk and something floating along side it pea size and translucent what was that?? working with light brown eggs to med brown eggs most of them i could see a yolk?? some seem clear nothing there... . THANKS
    [​IMG]ok so if you look close youll see the large round shape of the yolk then just off the bottomleft youll see a lump on it. in real life this thing seems transparent but globuleish is that normal?? has this egg started to grow?? or is this what im looking for in a fertile egg?? and the others are duds.

    It's just too tough for me to tell. It looks like something is going on there. Maybe a better flashlight would help?

    What day are the eggs on? Since the picture is not the greatest or a brighter flashlight might help too. But if it the first week you should be able to see veins and a transparent darker spot. If its the second week you should definitely see veins and the embryo moving around. Third week it will be a big dark spot not moving too much. Hoped that helped a little.

    That's fine. Since its not incubated you really won't see anything
