When I candled my eggs, though the same on the outside, I found the shell looked speckled, heavily, on 3 of the eggs...I thought I read somewhere this was not a good egg. I can't find it. Anyone? These eggs show an embryo formed (veins, dark spot, etc...)
I would like any info on this. These are brown eggs.

Usually it means the shell is porous. I've read that the chicks won't hatch, but that's not what I've experienced. I had two of those in my last hatch and the babies came out just fine.

Thank you. I was worried about them, and I hesitate to throw out viable eggs if they have a chance.

Gwen, I have porous eggs hatch all the time. If they are growing don't throw them out.
