First time hatching, can't tell if these eggs are doing okay?

    They were 'planted' in the incubator 12 day ago tonight. I've candled them, and am a bit confused. Needing help if you can!



    I have several eggs with a large swoop like this. One has a swoop on the top AND bottom. Another I have has a VERY deep swoop, almost sideways in the egg. The rest of the egg is too dense to see inside with any light I've found. Is that a normal thing for the egg? Is that the air cell? If it IS the air cell, isn't that large for this early?




    Few of them look like this. That means dead egg, correct? I also have a few that are the reverse of this. Perfectly even light at the top, darkness at the bottom. I can't see any veins, though. I think that means they're on track?

    I'm assuming this is the dreaded blood ring, along with a deep swoop. Is it normal for the air cell to be like that?

    And this is more of a curiosity than anything. I have one egg that when it arrived there were air bubbles in places they shouldn't be from handling. The air bubble seems MUCH looser than my other ones. Is that from transit? Or are all eggs like this? If it's not normal, can someone explain what's going on with it? You can see how it jiggles in the video. I have two like that. Maybe three.

    Doesn't sound like any are viable.
    Where did you order from?

    All eggs are not like that it sounds like they were scrambled in transit

    :hugs:hugs:hugsim sorry for your loss please notify the shipper and lemme know how that works out. The pics aren't very clear in my opinion so i cant say for sure that nothing is alive but if you dont see any veins on day 12 thats not good.

    I can't see veins in any except the one, I was hopeful the black ones just meant they were further along!

    They were supposed to be Polish, Phoenix, Silkie, and other "funky" chickens. The kids were really excited for their funky babies. :(
