problems. Today is day 8 of my broody sitting on eggs from my other, older flock (brahmas). The brahma eggs are always fertile when I crack them in a bowl for eating, but I have never tried to hatch them before. I was planning on waiting until this weekend to candle the eggs, since DH has promised to make me a proper candling box (vs. a flashlight). I was just out in the coop and smelled a horrible smell. Smelled like broody poop, but my broody was on her nest and she hadn't pooped. I checked the entire nest, no poop. So I'm thinking one of the eggs is bad, but I checked all of them and they don't have a smell, other than smelling mildly of hay. I decided to candle them using a flashlight. Not sure if I'm doing it right. All I see is nothing, cept for a few (porous?) spots; not alot, just a few. I can't figure out if I'm not doing it right or the eggs are no good. If they aren't any good, what do I do? Find her more eggs? Advise please.
