I'm on day six of incubating japanese quail eggs in my automatic turn incubator and I candled a few eggs and most of them just had a large dark spot on one side. Can anyone tell me what this means?

A large dark spot is most probably the developing hatchling
I hatched loads of Jap Quail ... they are not the clearest eggs to candle are they?

So everything turned out fine i started with 25 eggs, I had one hatch on day 16 and 20 on day 17 one piped and didn't make it! One still hatching and 3 that haven't piped at all but still have a couple of days to go! Not bad for first time thanks to everyone's help.
