    Our hens are happily coming on line with egg production. Still a bit small but now up to 11 eggs today.

    Candled them all and found one dark one, and one that was not as bright as the rest.

    What do you think, might I have a few bad ones?

    They will all be 23 weeks old Sunday September 16th, 2012.

    I collected them at 4 pm and candled them at 7 pm. We eat them and sell the rest, we don't incubate them. I'm looking for bad eggs, not developing ones. So what do you think?
