    Hi! So this is my first time incubating eggs... The first egg was supposed to hatch on the 28th. But it didnt. But now when I look at it the shell appears to be getting darker. What is that all about? When I candled it this is what it looked like

    Is there any way it could still hatch? Thank you so much!

    Often that is a sign that the embryo is dead.

    If it was supposed hatch on the 28th and it looks like this probably not. Did you successfully hatch anything? There is normally always some eggs that don't make it so it's perfectly normal to have ones not make it.
