    Is it normal for the eggs to appear to be at vastly different stages? I have some that you can see birds moving around, some that you can just see veins and 2 that are just clear lol. The ones that have veins might have a dark spot in the middle but I see no movement and cant tell if there is anything there except a yolk.

    Thanks,

    I forgot to mention these were mail order eggs. Will you get a chicken out of an egg even if you are never able to see anything in it? Or is there a chance to see something if I candle again right before lockdown?

    Thanks once again
