Hi
My eggs arrived via USPS all made it. I've looked at the eggs under a light and most have lots of dots, I don't see anything in them but don't have a good candler. I read that if eggs have highly defined pores they won't hatch. I haven't put them into incubator yet as I read you have to let the settle first. The seller sent eight and my incubator only holds seven how should I decide which one get trashed or should I put in all eight and turn by hand for the first seven days? Help :D

I have hatched any number of apparently 'porous' eggs with no problems whatsoever. I would put all eight in and hand turn until you candle. Chances are that not all will be viable.
