    It is Day 6 and I have jsut taken these pics of one of my eggs. I'm not sure what to make of it. My guess is that it's no good, and to stop incubating it. But I'm not positive.

    Someone please help. Is it still good for incubation, or not?

    travelers rest, sc
    from reading many messages, they say if you don't know leave it for a couple more days, then candle again to see if you can tell anything in it. my duck eggs to 9 days to see veins, but with chickens it may be different. i left my eggs in 1 extra week just to make sure, and it was a dud for me. maybe someone else may have more info. than i have given you. good luck!!! hope this helps a little bit.

    Candling before day 7 is always a gamble .... once you see vein development, you will recognise it, and never forget what it looks like [​IMG]

    Say a little pray for your chickie and candle again at Day 10. By then you should know something for sure. Is this the only egg you have or is this the only one you aren't sure of?

    Well, I have 7 eggs in there right now. This one was started 1-3 days before the rest. So I was going to wait till atleast tomorrow to candle the others.

    Hard to tell by the pics, if there is an embryo. but the yolk will totally change shape in early development so it looks promising. The air cell looks a little large for day 6 though.
