    How long after death of the egg will the veins remain visible when candling? Are there other ways to know if the chicks are dead or alive inside the egg?

    That is a good question, and I have no clue! I only candle day 7 10 14 18 so if they are dead they are dead [​IMG] so looking at those numbers between 2-4 days
