How graphic is too graphic?

I just finished a hatch of 2 Porcelain Booted Bantam roos over 2 Mille Fleur d'Uccle hens. Two eggs did not hatch 1 from each hen. I opened them and could see that a foot was over each head not allowing it to hatch. I took pictures and would like to share them but they are 'graphic' and I don't want to offend anyone. I always open unhatched eggs to learn anything I can, in case its something I can improve on for future hatches. Would it be OK to post them here or would you rather I did not?

I would not be offended, but can't speak for others.  Maybe an Administrator can answer that for you :huh:

I don't have the stomach to crack any of my non-hatchers :sick:  I understand why a person would, as you wonder why they didn't hatch.

Re: How graphic is too graphic?

Even though I'm a bit queasy about it I open unhatched eggs to get an idea when they stopped developing or to try and figure out why they didn't hatch, So I'm okay with it.


Some of us are driven by the need to make animals a part of our lives. We are soothed by their presence, fascinated by their behavior, and amused by their antics.

I always open unhatched eggs to learn as much as I can and would love to see your unhatched eggs.
