if you candle the eggs before you set them what should you see inside the egg?
good question, I didn't do that....
there's not really anything to see as far as candeling goes... if you want to crack one open to check fertility you can look for a white dot w/ a halo type thing around it that people call a bullseye.. that means it's fertile... a non fertile egg will have just the tiny white dot.. no halo...
i saw very faint veins on day 3 , and great veins on day 4....
that was taken last night.. day 4.. lol.. i'm rather excited.. my first hatching..
It will just glow. I candled mine before I set them so I would know what to compare against.
This site gives a good picture.
Just a small air cell at the big end and a yolk that looks like a shadow floating aroung.
You don't see anything but maybe the yolk. Can take a few days to really see the air sac.
i have 9 eggs and 7 of them look clear but the other 2 looks like there is something floating in them. the eggs were laid on 10/6 and 10/8 but haven't been put in an incubator yet. is this normal? i am assuming the eggs were gathered daily because they are marked. they are shipped eggs.
Quote:You can't tell fertile eggs without starting your incubation process and then by candling if they are shipped eggs. That also does not mean they were not fertile when they left the sellers hands. The only way to tell fertile eggs of your own hens and roo is to crack a few in a dish and look for fertility disc.
