The "C's" are on day #10, so they're definitely got it going on. They are 21 dayers.What day of development are these eggs on? I see some with definite life, like #1C and #2C, but the others might just not be far enough along to see much yet, depending on the day of incubation.
You not think T#1 is developing?Fertile Eggs: C#1-C#2, T#8-T#5, CQ#3
CQ is short for Coturnix Quail.
This one might have development, but I just can't tell. I think your idea to candle again at lockdown is a good one.
I took several CQ eggs out of the incubator today, cracked them open to check their fertility, they were pretty little duds. Looks like my "Silver" CQ is doing his job, it's exciting to see your own eggs in the bator!This one might have development, but I just can't tell. I think your idea to candle again at lockdown is a good one.
I know that's right!!!I have heard that a marker can cause ink to leach through to the embryo. I have been using a marker too, but I'm going to try using something else, like a pencil. Just be careful not to write too much information on the egg because it makes candling a lot more difficult to read. As long as you mark a letter for breed & a number
What about a normal pencil? It won't be as easy to see as your sharpie, but it would be pretty quick to grab an egg and test whether it shows up well enough.It's hard enough to see through those quail eggs without any writing on them!
Maybe a wax pencil would work better?
Anybody have a suggestion for a substitute instead of my sharpie?
