    Hi there! I am incubating my first set of eggs. I have 14 Polish eggs. They are on day 11 of incubation and I decided to candle them today. All of them have the bacteria ''spots'' all over them! Some are empty and a few have what looks like a floating yoke or dark spot. What causes the bacteria? Do you think they have any chance at hatching?

    I bought the eggs on this website.

    I didn't candle them before now. I wish I had! I think it may be pourous egg shells, now but I'm still not sure.

    Porous eggs can hatch.

    I hatched porous eggs before, and they seem to be developing. Don't sweat it [​IMG]
