Hi, the shells have some discolouration and I can’t see any movement when candled, although the air sacks are still intact. I’m going to leave them till the full 28 days or until the parents reject them whichever happens first, I don’t want to leave them too long as from my understanding the bacteria from a dead egg can be bad for the chicks in the nest.How do you decide the eggs are dead? Did you candle them? Leave the eggs there for a few more days, and see what will happen. I think your pearl hen maybe a whiteface pearl. Look the babies, all creamy color hair, which indicating split to whiteface. One if the babies is lutino, may be a girl.
it’s quite possible she’s split to white face, I don’t know her parentage unfortunately so any split will pop up as a nice surprise! 😂
