    I also wait for about 3 days before plugging the turner in. And I am attempting the cool/mist for 10 min/day for days 7-14, then will bump it to 15 min 14-21, and then 20 for the last few days. Don't remember where I read it. This is my first batch of ducks (and a few geese eggs), so I will let you know!

    On some eggs you can see somethings happening possibly as early as day 3, day 5 is a pretty good sight. Sometimes not until day 7 or beyond if they're dark eggs.

    So far, so good. Out of 5 goose eggs, 2 were infertile/not developing. Out of 20 duck eggs, down to 15, all 5 had blood rings, and the clears I thought I had did develop! Did day 10 candle yesterday, all is going well so far! All moving/developing like normal.

    Did you mark the air cell? It's hard to tell from your photo, the shell looks a little spotty/speckely. did you check for cracks?
    x2, on the answer of you will not see veins for a few days, but you probably know this.
    I am no expert, but as long as the air cell is intact and no cracks, or mis-shaped egg shell or not too dirty, you can try to hatch.
    how many times have you incubated?
