    Just candled my eggs after three days in the incubator - all 16 of them. Guess how many had veining? UMmm ONE!
    The others were all scrambled! So needless to say, I am not gonna just do one. The whole batch is trash. Bummer. paid good money for those too. Oh well. there will me more. I guess New Mexico to Georgia is just too far for eggs to travel.

    Yea I was pretty sure. I have a good LED flashlight, and i get the room pitch black. I can see the veining pretty clearly. Plus when I opened the other eggs, they were all totally scrambled like that fake egg stuff in a carton. I was shocked.

    I just tossd the one egg too. Just felt it wasnt worth it hatching just one. So I guess I will just wait till more come available that are closer.

    At 3 days it is too early to see veins in most eggs. I use a surefire to candle and many times I can't see anything that early. I am a very experienced hatcher and even at 7 days you can't alays see veins. You should not toss eggs before 14 days.

    How do you know they were scrambled? What did you see?
