  2. in my experience.. when you see an egg turn dark (not candling it.. just under normal light) it means it's rotten.. never saw one with just dark spots.. are you sure the dark spots weren't there before?.. like a discoloration or speckling of the egg?.. also .. have you done the sniff test?

    smell the egg, up close to your nose. If it smells rotten, it is rotten. Toss it.

    In my experience, eggs do not change colour while incubating and hatching...

    You need to smell the eggs, sounds like they are rotten, or at least that one changing colors is. Please use ? Or ! When appropriate, not everything is needing a ! At the end of it. At day 24 I would guess they are quitters and not going to hatch.

    I don't want to offend anyone but I've noticed the same thing about all your threads you've posted today. Way too many exclamation marks. I may just be a little easy to irritate but I know I'm way more willing to answer questions and respond to threads in general if the thread is written with at least a little bit of effort to make it grammatically correct. I know not everyone's perfect, I make spelling mistakes all the time, but it's coming off as if you're yelling.

    Maybe try it more like this:

    Hi! I'm on day 24 of my hatch and nothing is happening yet. One egg has a little bit of a bump, it might just be the way it came but I think it might be getting a few black spots. Do eggs change color when they hatch?

    There's also a rule about bumping and over-posting. Most people consider double posting within a few hours of each other as over posting and you've done it several times within minutes of each other. If someone can help you they will post.​
