    Hello all! I am letting one of my Broody hens hatch eggs. Two eggs have hatched so far, that were laid on Oct 18th. She has 3 left, that were laid on the 20th. Eggs came from various hens in my flock. I candled on day 8,9 and all looked good. I checked for movement in eggs by placing them in a glass of luke warm water on day 17 and all were still good.
    One of the remaining eggs, has strange marks on it and I am wondering if it is still viable.
    I took this pick on day 18, while broody was up eating.

    I've had eggs like that before. Its just some color spotting that happens during the development of the shell. It shouldn't affect the chicks or the hatching.

    I hope the rest hatched well! : )
