    So it's cloudy here in NJ and i thought I'd candle some of the maybe's on the 7th day. I can say 3 of the maybe's are fertile. One was hard to see cuz there are many spots in it but i saw the embryo move. :) So now i have 15 fertile eggs and 5 maybes.

    2 of them are clear so I guess they are non-fertile
    1 has a blood spot (picture below)
    and i did not candle the other 2 maybes yet

    So out of an original 24 I have 15 which is not bad.
    Should i toss the clear ones?
    I think this picture one is a nonfertile or didn't grow too much.

    (i tossed out the maybe's that turned out to be non fertile since i opened them up and it was just yoke... i took a picture and tossed the eggs down the toilet).

    Looks like that one died part way through.
