    I am incubating eggs, but when I candle them it just looks like blobs growing on the yolk, but I don't see veins or an eye, like I did in my previous hatch. they seem to be getting bigger but they are round. could it be my candle flashlight is not bright enough? it is a really big mag-light I honestly have no idea why they are like this [​IMG] [​IMG]

    When I incubate my own chicken eggs, I always fire-up the incubator and get it the right temp then I put what ever eggs I get that day in there. That way they're the freshest. [​IMG]

    Ok, now I found my flashlight and candled the oldest one first and was SHOCKED to see a 4-5 day old embryo with veins sticking out in all directions! ok, so first a blob grows and grows on the yolk, than EXPLODES into a embryo??!?!?!? I am soooo bewildered! [​IMG] but happy too [​IMG]

    I had an egg with 2 blobs in it and broke it open after I realised it wasn't developing further and it looked like mold so if you see the blob 1 again keep your eyes on it.

    well no, it was sorta like there was a blob growing on the yolk until it was as big as the yolk, than turned into a embyro with veins, but now I am worried because the airsack is very big [​IMG]

    Really try not to worry... I seem to do everything wrong (according to a lot of posts on BYC) [​IMG] ... and almost always things turn out just fine. [​IMG] Worry is only useful if it is something that you can do something about and the worry prompts you to do it. [​IMG] Can you do anything about a large air-sack? [​IMG] Try and just enjoy and learn. It really is a lot of fun! [​IMG] You will really enjoy your babies! [​IMG] good luck! [​IMG]

    Oh... and after seeing your signature... a really good thing to do is PRAY!
