    I have a very large white leg horn egg, I did not like the looks of it when I put it in the bater. When I candled it from the beginning it showed a perfect orangish circle. At day ten it looks exactly the same. The shell is thin and somewhat bumpy. I got my eggs from ebay. Should I just toss this egg, or wait?

    the circle actually looked just like the yolk not a blood ring

    Just leave it in. Even if it's bad it won't hurt anything. Candle at day 14
    and see what it looks like. Chuck it at day 18 when you stop turning.

    I would toss it. If it has a thin shell and still looks like a yolk...toss it. You don't want to risk it blowing up all over the other eggs.

    I would toss it too. On a white egg, day 10 would show signs of development.

    I agree by now it should show signs of development easily seen thru a thin white shell. I would toss it if it's that obvious.

    **Love the development chart !! I really like it when you can see them moving against the light inside the shell.
