    Hi
    I was hoping for an expert opinion please. I am worried my egg has died. I decided to let my broody sit some eggs - my 1st time ever. I bought 6 Pekin bantam eggs from eBay. 10 days in only 1 was developing, two days later it still looked to be going strong then my broody get quite a lot if poo on two eggs including the good one. Today is day 16 and I have just candled the egg again but today it looks different, these are the pics I have just taken do you think it has gone or still ok?
    Thank you!

  2. At 16 days it should be well developed and you could not see through the egg, day 18 is lockdown so I would say it is a goner

    Thanks, that what I thought but wasn't 100%. Must have been the poo that did it.
