    I just started incubating my first batch of eggs two days ago. They are shipped eggs (a gamble I know, but one I was willing to take). When I was candling the eggs after I first got them, I noticed that one of them had little specks swirling around when I turned the egg. Does this mean the egg is no good? Is there something wrong inside of it?

    Personally, I would wait and candle around seven to ten days to know for sure. I had an egg once that looked interesting inside but my gut told me to put it back and it eventually hatched a nice little silky chick I named Octotoes (long story). Best of luck. My hen is sitting and her eggs I think are supposed to hatch next week.
