I have some bantam eggs in an incubator and I didn't hold out much hope for them, due to my incubator not arriving on time. I candled them at day 5 and only two of them seemed to have any veins. Today, two days later, four more of the eight seem to have some vein development. The others look pretty porous--but then again, so did a few that developed veins on/by day seven. What are the odds of the others being fertile, if there is no sign of life yet? None of the eggs with veins seem to have a lot of veins; is that normal? What are the odds of the eggs hatching, if I had to wait two days after receiving the eggs before putting them in the incubator? Also, I got some Welsummer eggs that went into the incubator the same day as these bantam eggs. I can't see into them to candle them! Are there any "tricks" to candling dark eggs? Even if I don't get any eggs out of this hatch, I'm having a great time trying and learning about the process. Regardless of how it turns out, I'm definitely going to end up getting more and trying again.
