Here's my story... I ordered 6 eggs from a hatchery. They were shipped out Tuesday (a day after laying), so they are currently 6 days out; they arrived at my house Friday. Three of the eggs I am taking to school tomorrow to try to hatch in my fancy little electric incubator; three I kept at home to attempt to hatch in my cheap, turn-em-yourself incubator. I figured the eggs at home don't have a great chance of success, but I thought I'd try anyway. The home eggs have been sitting in the incubator since Friday evening (about 2 days), and I decided to try candling for the fun of it (and so I don't look like an idiot in front of my class!). Here were my results: Egg 1: Seems to have a line around the circumference of the egg about 1/3 of the way up from the bigger end. Egg 2: Can't see a thing Egg 3: Has a dark mass free floating in the egg Any hints for a newbie as to what this could mean? From the pictures I've seen on the internet, the line seems to be a bad thing, but what about eggs 2 & 3? Thanks! I'm having a lot of fun!
