    I am posting today bc my chicken is not brooding and we had 25 eggs in the nest so we took them out the nest to incubate them in a incubater. On the 14 day we candled them and all of the eggs were meekly and black on the top half of the egg which means they died. Is it possible that the eggs started to incubate in the pin before we took it out and when we took it out it messed them up? Or what could be a reason for all the eggs to be this way?
