    I have 23 silkie eggs in my LG incubator. I am on day 6 and just candled the eggs. I have some eggs that look clear but I dont know if I should keep them in the incubator in case they are "late bloomers." But I also dont want them to go bad and explode. I have 9 that are clearly developing and one that I thought was a blood ring but it isnt a full circle and it is only on one side of the egg, do you think it is just veins? This is my first hatch and I am nervous and want to do everything right. Thanks for any help [​IMG]
