I just candled my eggs last night that are due on Mothersday and over 50% showed little to nothing there . Now I have a theory but I was wondering if anybody knew if this would affect the eggs. I have two broodie hens that sit in the favorite egg laying corner. I am at work all day and collect eggs when I get home or after dinner. I was wondering if the time that they sat on those eggs (I would estimate 6-8hrs) it would "start" the egg and then when I put them in the turner until its full those eggs would "die". Anybody know anything about this? I've hatched many batches and never had this problem before. Also when I open the eggs almost all are always fertilized that I can see.
