    Still new to hatching so just double checking ;) Candled our eggs todays for the first time this round while momma hen was down eating this morning. All eggs look like they have decent growth except this one. Should I just toss it next time shes away from her eggs? Its just that ring and nothing else. Its day 9. [​IMG]

    I'm no expert, but I would wait a few more days until the next time you candle them, just to be sure. It would be terrible if you tossed the egg and a half-formed chick popped out [​IMG] Good luck![​IMG]
     
  3. It wouldn't hurt anything to just leave it, right? No harm done? If it hatches, it hatches, if not, it doesn't. [​IMG]
