    I need some help. I am on day 13. I set 14 eggs, out of those, I think only 3 are good. The 3 clearly have a live embryo. They are developing nicely and moving all around. Some pictures of some I suspect are bad are below, but I need help on whether to throw out or not:

    Same egg in both pics, I think this embryo died at some point. I cannot see any movement or veins. It looks the same as it did on day 10. Am I right about this one being dead?

    These, I suspect were infertile. I don't see anything. A few of them, you can see the yolk moving around and stuff floating when u turn the egg. They were from my orpington pen. I am going to have to check fertility.

    I haven't taken any eggs out yet. They are all still in tact and do not stink. Please help. I am excited but nervous about losing the 3 good ones.

    Yup, early quitter and rest were infertile or just never started.

    Toss 'em.
