    Candling Incubated Eggs

    Incubated eggs are candled to determine whether they are fertile and, if fertile, to check the growth and development of the embryo. White eggs should be tested for fertility on the third day. Brown shelled eggs on the fifth or sixth day because it is difficult to see the embryo clearly before this time.

    A small reddish area with blood vessels extending away from it will be visible in fertile eggs. This is the embryo floating around inside the egg, looking like a huge red spider. If the embryo dies, the blood draws away from the embryo and forms what is called a blood ring. All clear eggs and eggs showing blood rings or streaks should be removed from the incubator. If eggs are not candled during the early stages of incubation, it will be difficult to determine whether the egg was fertile; embryos that die early soon decompose and are not easily distinguished from rotten eggs.

    I ended up with white broad breasted turkeys. Dumber than a box of rocks and the personality to go with their stupidity. All they do is stand in one spot and stare at you, then forget that their food and water is a foot away in plain sight and start screeching. They aren't even pretty!

    I want wild turkeys next time.
