Hi! I’ve hatched eggs before but this egg seems like it might be bigger then normal for only being at day 10 I’ll post a picture but just wondering what you think and if maybe it’s just because the shell is so light and it’s a small egg?
It looks fine to me. Nice veins. Some candle everyday, I do not.. Candle again on day 14. Less you handle the eggs, the better.
I have had a day 7 embryo the size of a day 11 embryo before. I candle everyday sometimes. Usually I do the day 7, 10, 14, 16, & 18 candling. Day 18, is lockdown, so I candle for the correct position to set the eggs in.
