I candled today, this is not a full day 3, but I had it with other eggs, I questioned if this one was fertile, I still don't know that, but as I was candling to see if it was fertile, I saw the yolks are least darker..(more pics soon hubby is in room where eggs are developing...shh!) I was turning the egg to see the 2 yolks and saw a 3rd one. I know as far as doubles most don't even make it to day 10. So this one I am not holding my breath on, but if it does develop I will get an eggtopsy photo of 3 yolks later. If it is not fertile, then I will get a triple yolk photo out of it.

(Egg is from a local farm, not from my coop.)

Here is the egg along side a regular egg...

This is about actual size...

Below is one embryo developing it has taken alot of egg space, Strangely

I can see the other yolks but I cannot see more embryos, I thought yesterday I saw at least 2 developing. Now I just see the one, I wonder if the other yolks didn't get fertilized, or if the egg is so large that I cannot see the other embryos, Also if only one did get fertile, what will happen to the other yolks... I am guessing they my kill off this embryo, but it will be worth an eggtopsy. On the up side one embryo would have more room, but is it going to make it a mushy chick? I guess we will find out...
here is the back side of the egg...
