    Today is day 7 and I candle my buff Orpington,maran,Andalusian,leghorn eggs. I really didn't see any veins though :( my hen was broody for a week and then I put the fertile eggs under her because I was gone for a week. What do I do!? I really want chicks from these eggs! :(

    So was there anything else that you saw when you candled. Dark patches or a tiny red spot that seemed to blink on and off? Or was there just yolk?
