Finch Aviary - Care - Finch FAQ
first, fertile and infertile eggs will look the same. After about 4-7 days from the last egg being laid, you can candle an egg (using an egg candler or a small flashlight) to tell whether or not it is fertile. A fertile egg will have a network of vessels running through it. Infertile eggs are clear with a little yellow spot where the yolk is. As time passes, fertile eggs will take on a blue/grey color (as the embryo grows inside).
Leopard Gecko FAQ
Fertile eggs are soft and wet when they're laid, but firm up to about the toughness of a stale marshmallow within a little while. Usually no more than a day. After a few days or a week, hold the egg up to a penlight and shine the light through it. If you see veins or a reddish glow, chances are that your egg is fertile. The only way to know for sure, though, is to incubate it and see if it hatches.

Both sexes share the incubation duties through the day with the female incubating at night. Sometimes the male will also sit at night. Normally the male will roost close to the nest box. After they have been sitting "tight" for five to six days, candle their eggs. Don't permit them to sit for the entire 14 days on infertile eggs. Read more detailed information in Breeding 1.

Gold Circle Farms - FAQ
The nutrient content is the same in fertile eggs as non-fertile eggs. Typically, they are more expensive due to higher production costs.
EN) FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
If a red eared slider has laid eggs, than they have to be picked up and moved within 24 hours after the fertilisation. After this, the fission is in such a far stadium that the embryo is on top of the yolk. If the egg is moved at that moment, than there is a chance that the yolk comes on top of the embryo and the embryo will suffocate. If the eggs have been laid in the water they are no longer viable, because the eggshell is porous and water will enter the egg.

Seven to 14 days usually. I allow about 10 days from the first mating before collecting eggs for incubation.
classroom incubation and embryology questions
Remember eggs purchased from your local grocery store are not fertile and will not hatch. Fertile eggs can be ordered from a hatchery or breeding farm. If possible go to a local farm and bring the eggs yourself rather than having them shipped. Local breeders will often be willing to take the chicks back once they have hatched. Feed & Seed stores should be able to give you a few sources of eggs.

This varies somewhat depending on the type of finch. Usually around 14 days of incubation, but a general range can span 12-18 days. Note that incubation does not begin until the parents start sitting, which frequently will not happen until the 3rd or 4th egg is laid, or sometimes the entire clutch.
Finch Aviary - Care - Finch FAQ
If you are afraid that the parents will abandon the nest because of your interference, leave the infertile eggs. If your birds handle human intervention well, you can probably remove the eggs without a problem (to avoid them breaking in the nest). Some species, such as zebras and societies are more tolerant to human intervention and nest checks than others. Many waxbill species can be very intolerant, and with these birds it is probably better to leave the infertile eggs where they are.
Eggs and what develops
I have a cockatiel that I purchased from a woman in August 1998. She is, from what I was told, 2 years old. Yesterday to our surprise she laid an egg, and today she laid another egg. Am I to assume that the eggs do not have a chick in them? I'm not sure on what to do. Thanking you in advance, Tina. Yes, you are correct in thinking the eggs would not be fertile (assuming you only have her on her own). It is fairly normal for hens to lay eggs from around the age of 1 year.
Birder's Eye Wild and Caged Birds Sanctuary
No! It is normal for hens to lay eggs. We had one that surprised us this way back in the early 1990's, as one day an egg appeared in the bottom of her cage. We gave her calcium to replace what she lost laying the egg. After she laid the egg and no others, we removed it.

Fertile, egg-white mucus should stretch repeatedly in only one of two strands. Semen tends to be a little cloudier, and often stretches in several spiderweb-like strands. You may be able to stretch it a few times, but then it will begin to break.

There can be quite a delay between the birds finishing the nest and the female laying the first egg. Occasionally, birds will build a nest but then decide to move to a different site, abandoning it before it has even been used. We're very keen to know how often this happens, so please record your visits even if no eggs have been laid in the nest.

When properly stored, eggs rarely spoil. The faster you use your eggs, the less time any potential bacteria will have to multiply. As an egg ages, the white becomes thinner, the yolk becomes flatter and the yolk membrane weakens. Although these changes may affect appearance, they do not indicate spoilage and don't have any great effect on the nutritional quality of the egg or its functions in recipes. Rather than spoiling, if you keep eggs long enough, they're more likely too simply dry up.
Burning Man: What is Burning Man?: FAQ
Black Rock City is organized as 2/3 of a circle. There are axes on each half hour, from 2:00 to 10:00, intersecting with ten concentric semi-circles. You will be given a map of the city upon your arrival. Center Camp (the center for civic activities) is in the middle of the curve, and the man is a little over 1/4 mile north out from the center. You can usually find the map online in early August. Check out the archive of previous years in What is Burning Man for previous maps.
I keep hearing about parties
Some private parties are geared towards the sexual side of BDSM and D/s, combining swinging with BDSM. Others are aimed more at the S&M aspects, while still others may focus more on D/s. Chances are however if this is your first event, you probably won't. Probably not. The Overlook parties tend to be more erotically S&M oriented and most folks don't indulge in classic P/V sex.
