    Good Morning Family!

    I was wondering when I candled our new set of eggs they look almost totally full. The "yoke" went from just a bit at the top when we got them to now almost half fills or more the eggs. Is that a good thing? This is only day three. I cant tell if there are veins or not. there is over 18 eggs at about 101 degrees

    Thanks for any replies and advise

    Maybe your yolks look different because incubation has begun. I don't candle till day 7 so can't say for sure what eggs on day 3 would look like and if that's normal. I would leave them for now and candle again at day 7 you should be able to see the veins by then. Wishing you the very best of luck with your eggs :frow
