    Egg A-looks like a dud. Probably infertile.

    Egg B-too hard to tell from pic. Not sure

    Egg C-Good!

    Agree...
    Egg B might just be a dark shell, could be good or a quitter...
    If it doesn't smell, leave it in...

    Here is a pic of a day 14 egg. By day 14 the egg should be starting to look full of chick

    My thoughts would be

    A - infertile
    B - good because it looks full and dark, a pic showing the air sac would be good though.
    C- quitter, you can see the vein there but no dark mass that would be chick.

    Here is a set of pics with all the day's developments in

    Thank you all for your opinions!!

    As we all guessed "Egg A" was a no-go. I opened the egg this morning and this is what I found: [​IMG]

    "Egg B" I believe to be healthy. The egg has an air sac at the top which I believe is a good size for the egg. The dark mass is in the middle of the egg with a light[er] section at the bottom (room for the chick to continue to grow)

    "Egg C" I believe to also be a no-go. I do believe the embryo started to form, which is why we see the veins, but as you can see by my previous posts we had a VERY rough start which may be apart of stunted development.

    Most of my eggs look like Egg B.

    Hoping for the best! My fingers are crossed- only three more days until lockdown!!
