    I have an LG I started my eggs 6 days ago and I had an egg Turner but it went out I've been turning my eggs twice a day well 2 days ago I added a fan and today I candle the eggs and there are veins and little specs well I guess about 19 of 27 the veins are stuck on the egg the embryos Will jiggle but won't move. Am I pretty well screwed or what should I do?????!!!!!??? Any suggestions and comments greatly appreciated I got a great assortment of bannys and game eggs it would suck to lose them but it's a learning thing could it be the change from still air to forced bcuz they really took off when I put the fan in

    No you are not from what you have described that is what they should be like some veins move some don't. Take a deep breath and try not to panic. Have a look at some candling pics.

    Your eggs sound very normal, no worries!! The veins shouldn't really move much at all, they often appear stationary along the inside of the egg. I would suggest turning them more often if possible, though. Five times a day is best I think, but at least 3 times would also be fine. Good luck! :)
