Hi All,
I have 2 eggs out of 12 that look weird to me....when I candle them, they look like there is water inside. there is a "chick" and lots of veining, but the other 6 fertile eggs do not look like this....they have a "chick" and veining but dont wiggle. 4 others are bad, by the looks. One is real porous, the others have the bacteria rings. Should I pitch the watery looking ones or give them more time? Any ideas?

If they were mine and not seeping or smelling I would wait to day 14 when you candle to toss them, if still not sure give them to day 18...was always afraid I was tossing a good egg since I was not a great candler at first....

Are they shipped eggs? I have candled shipped egg that seemed sloshier than usual, and my understanding is that its a ruptured air cell.

Yes, they are shipped eggs. Sorry, forgot to mention that earlier. I am so afraid of an egg blowout/blowup that it is making me nervous. I guess I will leave them in till day 14 though.........
