    I am on day 13 and I have several eggs that started to develope with veins and little masses. But now the veins are gone and there is no movement and the masses just kinda float around. I DO NOT want stink bombs, yet don't want to 'kill' any live ones. But really if the veins went away they died.....right?

    No necessarily. Sometimes as the embryos grows, the veins become harder to see when candling. Don't throw them out yet.

    These are light creamy colored eggs, with other eggs in the batch showing veins. I am okay keeping them....but is there any way to tell if they will explode?

    I would put the ones that u cant see veins on one side of the bator and the good ones on the other side, just in case! [​IMG]

    Well I cracked one open....its mass was only a black blob the size of a nickle. It was TWINS...and they were dead. So sad, but I am sure they wouldn't of ever hatched anyways.
