So I ordered some Brahmah eggs online and they shipped here,one had a hairline crack and I threw it as it leaking. It has been 5 days now and I just candled them. The eggs were dark but only the yolk not most of the egg and I did not seem to see any blood vessels or embryo,is it a little early or something else? I am incubating them with some of my Arab bantam eggs and they are growing fine and have made significant progress since day 1

Hm. Can you take some candling pics in a dark room? Any movement?

There is no movement and I'm only able to upload images tomorrow cause its kinda late now
Oh, ok. Sounds good. It's only 2 p.m. here. I'm guessing you aren't in the US? I'll watch for pics!
Also, welcome to BYC!

Today is the 5th day and I don't see any progress so far unlike my bantam eggs which had shown veins on day 3

Since they're brown eggs I'd wait until day 7 to candle. Bantams have thinner shells so they're easier to see through. They look like they're starting to develop. Candle again on day 7 and don't throw out and eggs until day 14 just to be safe.
