    First time breeding my chickens and I have a broody hen than has been incubating my EE eggs for about 2 weeks.the eggs range from 4-9 days old. I've been candling them and haven't seen a darn thing. I gave up and took all but two out and cracked two just to see what the yolk looked like. This is what I got- the bottom one definitely had a bullseye but it's an orange color not white. What do you think!? Thanks!

    If she's been sitting on those 2 for 4-9 days, then, sorry, but they aren't fertile. Doesn't look like the bullseye, and there should be visible development by this time. Sorry
