Well, I'd be the first to say I'm a newbie at this hatching and candling stuff. But I really think only one of my eggs is viable and I'm heartbroken. I marked the rest as questionable and possible quitters. The one good one is dark and filling up a lot of the egg. Two others have smaller masses - I'm hoping they will hatch, and they are just bantums. The eggs were Bantum & LF both. About 5 of the original 9 eggs looked a bit smaller, so we figured those were banties. I guess the good news is, after all the reading I've done about broodys and hatching, I know that I have a good chance that my hen will go broody again, and I'll have another chance.
