Thought I'd start a separate post for my second batch of eggies, so if others are hatching the same day they could post here too. These eggs came from friends of my in-laws who raise their own chickens. They never hatch their eggs (they seem to think it's too hard to do) and always buy day old chicks from a hatchery. These had been popped into their fridge for a few days, so there was no guarantee that they would be viable. I did at least call and ask if they had a rooster. If they didn't, I would have just eaten the eggs. But they had a rooster, so there was a chance! After letting them warm up to room temperature for about 12-16 hours, into the bator they went. I have no idea what breeds these are, though I suspect the green and blue are EE's. After the first candling, I tossed two eggs. One was cracked, and the other was very very thin shelled and chalky feeling, unlike the other smooth eggs. Yesterday I verified that there is development going on! My blue egg has a set of twins in it. I've marked the shell on either side just underneath where I found the twins. Twin #1 and Twin #2. Today I saw veining in the green egg and the pink egg. I can't see what's going on in the brown eggs yet, but one of them is definitely clear with nothing going on. I believe it's a wind egg. The others, their yolks have all spread out, which leads me to believe that they are developing. It's the same phenomenon I noticed with my first batch of eggs. The other set of twins is in that gigantic brown egg. If ever there was a set of twins to have a chance of surviving after hatch, it has to be them. There is so much room in that egg that I have high hopes they don't overcrowd each other. I can already see that the veining in the blue twins has started to intertwine with the veins from the opposite chick. They are on day 6 today.
