    [​IMG]somewhere on BYC there are pictures of what you can see when candling eggs, and an explanation of what it is. I think if you put "Egg Candling photos" in the search box they should come up. I think 24 days is late for most chicken breeds BUT, if the temps in the incubator were not as high as they should be, that can cause slower development. If the eggs are not leaking or stinking, maybe they are still okay.

    Welcome to BYC! Happy you joined us!
     
  8. If they are fertile they should hatch in less they dies. If none hatched after 24 days there is a good chance they are dead. If you saw a chick in the egg (would be completely dark inside most of the egg)when you candled they could be ok it's kinda unlikely that they are all late hatchers.
