    Tomorrow is day 7 for the eggs i have now in my bator and i was suppose to candle tomorrow night but i couldn't wait! it was driving me crazy! [​IMG]

    So i went on ahead and candle.

    First this is what i have in my bator...

    Frizzle eggs << Lisa eggs

    BNN eggs ( bantam NN blue/splash/black ) << Lisa eggs

    NNF eggs ( blue/black/splash NN frizzle ) << Lisa eggs

    Buff Orp X's eggs << Robin eggs

    Wyandotte X's eggs << Robin eggs

    Blue Orp egg << Robin egg

    Crested Pekin eggs << Lisa eggs

    Double crested Pekin egg << Lisa egg


    Lisa Dipsy Doodle Doo

    Robin Pumpkinpup


    Now after i candle i see that ALL of Lisa chicken eggs but one has veins! [​IMG]

    the one that looks clear to me i will recandle that one on day 14 [​IMG]

    it's still to early i think to candle the Pekin eggs so i will on day 10 just to make sure.


    When i candle Robin eggs i saw one buff orp x egg with veins! [​IMG] the others were to dark to tell i am getting a better light this weekend to candle with.

    I have 6 eggs on day 6 today, it is driving me crazy wanting to candle already too. They are test GLC so not sure if they are fertile. I understand how you feel. Glad to hear you have veins, sounds like you will have alot of babys in a few weeks. Hope the quails are doing well.

    You could probably candle the Pekin eggs now if you wanted to. I've been raising ducks for years now and can usual see veining at 5 days unless the shells are really thick for some reason.
