    Hello, It is day 14(I think, my chicken chart got messed up)and I candled today and I am concerned about the results so I took some pictures to ask for some help [​IMG]

    The 2 black dots on this one are shell on the outside of the egg(from another egg)I could not get it off, so I am not worried about that. It is just not as dark in there as I was told it was suposed to be [​IMG]this second one concerns me because you cannnot tell in the picture but the light mostly comes in from the smaller side of the egg and the air sac looks tiny :( also he went from being veiney to kinda floating at the top of the egg....I was not given very many eggs to start with now I have these 2 So I dont want to lose them are they okay?

    I had a hatching book that said that- but I decided to keep letting them hatch. but marked it on my chart. after you said that I looked back at the ones that had clear ends (not super clear though.)

    at the very least if it is day 18 and there is clear give it an extra day. especially before lockdown.
