    ok so i just went into lock down and decided to candle them. out of 32 only 11 where good?!
    why is this?? i went outside and cracked them some where rotten but some had a little blood in them ( but none had chicks )

    When you cracked them, did you look for the fertility bullseye? That could answer your questions. Otherwise, it's hard to say what the problem was without more details about your incubator conditions, etc.

    no growth after 18 days in the incubator? Thats odd. What did the 11 look like when you candled?

    the ones that where good where all filled up and you could see veins and it moved. the others looked empty when candled. and when i cracked then some had the bulllseye and some where just like a store bought egg

    were you possibly seeing the disc and not an actual bullseye? sometimes its a bit tricky. But on the other hand, at least you have 11!
