    hey guys, one of muscovy hens abandoned a few of her eggs so i had to put them in my incubator a week ago. at that time i could see the blood vessels and the embryo. yesterday when i candled them i couldn't see anything. the question is i don't know when to stop turning them and wait for hatching. just does anybody know at approximately what day of candling the light doesn't go through the egg anymore and nothing but the air sac can be seen?
    thanks
