    Out of the 14 eggs that they shipped I was down to 10 after the first candling. At day 15 I candled and one egg looked to be half full. The others where all dark except of the air sack. I opened the one egg and there was a small chick inside no more than 1" in length. The egg had a blood ring around the inside. It was so detailed I couldn't believe it. Wings, legs and tows. No down at all. Any one have an idea at what day the chick died ? I am keeping a journal and have no idea on what day to write down. John

    This has helped a lot. Looks like the egg I opened was day 14-15. Looks like I am right on time. Thank you. I greatly appreciate it. John
