    [​IMG] Today is my 7th day and I candled.... out of 9 silkie eggs only 2 are looking good [​IMG] (from all the pics I have browsed to see what to look for) a couple are looking clear something just floating around... most look like they have blood rings... and one is questionable.. I am so sad right now [​IMG] I've got a headache from all of it. I will take pics next time I candle to get some input from you all. I will most likely candle tomorrow again... [​IMG]

    If in doubt give it some time. Sometimes the veins are not staring out at you if you know what i mean. If you see definite blood rings then toss them but if anyof them are questionable, I would keep and wait a couple more days or to day 10
