FERTILITY in QUESTION!?

NO WE'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT ME!!

This picture was actually taken in the dark, in our guest bathroom while supper was cooking. We decided to CANDLE aka check the fertility (or try to) of our 22 eggs. You do this by going in the dark and putting your egg up to a flashlight.
About 3 or 4 looked like fertile eggs-we could tell for sure (you will see veins & a dark spot). It was so hard to tell PLUS.....WE ARE CLUELESS about it really. We even looked at tons of pictures on-line and they were pretty inconclusive to a first time CHICKEN GROWER! It was VERY COOL how you could see inside the egg though!

We will candle FOR OUR PEEPS again on Friday to see if they made any progress! The below picture is of a "GOOD EGG." Not one of ours but shows what we are looking for. Just to see the miracle of life inside this little egg just makes God even more amazing to me!

You are so making me want to have a farm. I ask my husband if we can raise chicks when we have a farm.

That is awesome! I love how enthralled all the kids are with looking at the egg.....too cute! :o) Can't wait to see if/when they hatch!

I'm always so glad when someone else can't see things either. I spent an entire biology course never seeing one thing in that crazy microscope! Hope the next fertility check is positive.

I always learn interesting things over here! Good luck with the chicks!

You know I'm praying for you and all that God is placing on your heart!
