    Hi BYC,
    One of my six eggs has a circle in the middle. I know that if there's a circle around the whole egg, it's dead, but this egg only has a circle in the middle. I'm insure whether or not it's alive or dead. [​IMG]

    These pictures make it really rough to see anything useful. Just remember, you will see the yoke in the middle, as well. What day are you candling?

    Today is day 5. All of the other eggs have definite veins. [​IMG]

    every other egg looks like this. that's why I'm unsure.

    Day five is still a bit early to candle. Wait until day 10, then you'll be less unsure.
