    i just candled my pheasant eggs, placed in the brooder the 31st. i was able to see veins on almost all of them!!! one of them had a floating air sac, it moved as i rotated the egg. i put it back in the incubator but that is probably one that got too much shaking during shipping right? I'm new at this so I'll leave them all in till the end unless I have an odor. just curious!

    Yes, that one did not survive the shipping, and will not develop. If you only got 1 damaged, thats great! I think the older eggs have more trouble surviving shipping. so I bet that egg was the oldest. Good luck!
