    I candled yesterday- day 8- several eggs from my banties. All of the eggs from my brahma are really porous and flecked. I can't tell if they are fertile or not, but the cochin eggs all look good. I read somewhere that porous eggs aren't good. Any chance I could get some to hatch in the incubator? Would they need to be done seperately with a different humidity level? Thanks!

    When did it start oozing? I haven't had any do that yet. 1/2 of the eggs in the incubator are hers. I wish I would have waited and added more cochin eggs! Pooey. Let me know how it works out!

    I'm on 18, and I have serveral porous eggs too. I candled on day 10, and thought I saw chicks in some of the porous ones. I candled again on day 17, and some of them appear to be developing fine. I'm having lots of probs with this hatch, though. Others on here seemed to think that they could hatch, you just had to watch your humidity.

    You can check out my other post here for better info than I can give on the same topic (I have pics of my eggs at day 10 in here too):
