    I have 18 eggs that I placed in our little Giant forced air incubator. 12 I purchased and the other 6 from my own flock. Temp and humidity has been between 99.0 and 102. Should I be concerned that I am not yet seeing any veining? And when should I try to candle again, if there is still a chance I could have fertile eggs?

    Has you're temp been going up to 102. If it has that is to high for a forced air. What color is the eggs you're trying to candle? By day seven you should see what looks like a spider web. In the center of web you should see a dark spot the eye.
