    I found 3 duds for sure. Then there are some eggs that have lots of networking of veins, some that have less, and some only in some areas....hhmmm I sure don't want exploding eggs:eek: so should I recandled in a couple days or toss the "I'm not sure about" ones, like maybe they started and quit.........[​IMG] or what ????????? (can you tell this is my first time incubating...btw these are duck eggs and I am trying to follow Dave Holderreads Duck book)....

    Some of my eggs look like there are veins on half the egg,like all on the bottom, and half is totally clear..... is this normal? I am turning 180 degrees once a day and lightly misting and cooling as his book says. I did cool for 15 min. a day the first week, then reread where he says only about 6-8 minutes the first week...opps...but figure it isn't an exact science.
