Candling dark brown eggs help

post #1 of 3

Is their a way to candle black copper Maran eggs? I can't see anything inside them. If I can't candle them then how do I know which ones gone bad? I'm using a led flashlight those little small ones.

Yes they can be candled but you need a very bright light and experience on what to look for helps a lot since it's not going to be anywhere near as obvious as lighter colored eggs...

If you are unable to candle sufficiently just let all the eggs run the course... I'm not saying it never happens, but it's rare that eggs explode during a 21 day incubation time so the risk of leaving them in there is not big...

Got a recommendation for a light?
