I have 7 brown eggs under a broody. When can I candle them and see something?
I wouldnt candle till at least day 10. That way you will definetely see something in them if they are growing. I know it's hard to wait that long but you will have a better chance of seeing viening and heart beat and such. Good luck! Keep us posted.
yes, you should be able I think at 5-7 days old...dark dark room...what I did was get a tiolet paper roll, I put in a small flash light inside...it was wobbley so I took it out, wrapped paper around it to fit, and inserted it again. sat it on the counter. Grabbed and egg MAKE SURE YOUR HANDS ARE CLEAN!!!!
then I held the egg on its side not with the big side down or up...on its side...I slowly turned it, held it there, looked...let eyes get adjusted, turned slowly....I could see the eye movement!!!!
Im due on Aug 7th!!!! good luck!!!! pm if you still have questions...
Quote:Yeah I just got hatching eggs today and i am going crazy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
LOL... I know the feeling all to well! It gets easier after a few batches. Like the other poster said the darker the room the better, and clean hands are good too
Hey I am now on day 14 and all I can see is dark all dark except for the air sac, are the developing?
I found this to be fairly helpful to me, out of most of the diagrams I found. Especially with the darker shelled eggs.
On day 14, and all you see is the air sac...i'd say theres a good chance that the eggs are full of baby chick....congrats....
Hey, I'm a newby too. Just be carefull if you are that far and cannot see anything... the egg may have gone bad. If it starts to smell you might want to toss it before it explodes. I am always hesitant to toss them, just in case... Good luck with your hatch!
