I have 3eggs that are all black inside. This is my second time hatching so I know a thing or two about incubating but this is STRANGE!

Are the eggs very dark or a special color green or blue? What light are you using? Are there other eggs in the incubator? How do they look?
No just plain brown eggsells.
A built in that the incubator has. I also used my phone
There are other eggs in the incubator. 3 are at day 1, 3 are at day 5 and then there are 2 more mystery eggs that have veins and everything but to be honest I am a bit worried about them developing too :oops: :fl

It’s possible your phone isn’t bright enough. I would leave them and just make sure they don’t start to smell.
