    Is this normal? Little thing was moving great this morning but when I candled a few minutes ago there was no movment and some of the veins look like they had gone black. I hope I dont start loosing them now. Lock down is next week.

    I've only done chickens, but it doesn't look normal to me.

    You have candled your eggs twice in one day, way too much. Not much you can do to help them at this point other than hands off.

    I have the same problem. What ended up happening to it? I've got 26 eggs at day 21 or 22 and they all look like that all of a sudden.

    I ended up loosing it. When i cracked it open it has what looked like mold on the veins. But if yours are still moving i would leave them alone. Iv ran across acouple more but not so bad that didnt have the mold.

    Dangit. That sucks. I know some of them are probably gone. I hope at least a few of mine make it....
