    I've candled eggs before.But with these eggs , when I candle them the inside of the egg is very splotchy..You can't tell from the outside..I also do not think that any of the 3 eggs are going to hatch but so hard to tell with all the splotching..

    Sounds like porous shells or bacterial growth. Is it like spotty dark patches (porous shells, might be ok to develop and hatch but watch humidity like a hawk) or like dull large blobs (bacterial growth inside egg, caused by late collection, dirty eggs or insufficient strage)?

    I can't think that is was bacterial growth.She had just laid the eggs,,they were still warm..How do you fix pourous eggs ?Feed the chickens differently ?
