    I need to know so I don't end up with rotten eggs.

    I had a few eggs from a chicken that was trying to hatch them. I found out that she had 6 guinea eggs under her. Only two seemed to be doing anything, so I cracked the rest of them open and sure enough they didn't do anything.

    However the two that were I put in the incubator. If my calculations are correct they should have about one more week.

    On one of them when I candled yesterday had seemed to stop developing. But the other is almost all blacked out.

    What should it look like with one more week left?

    This is my third attempt on incubating in the bator and this is the farthest I have ever gotten.

    When you candle them if the liquid moves all over the place when you turn it it is rotten, you can also do the water test, a good egg will sink bad egg floats cause there is now a gassy liquid inside.
