Candling Question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
It day 5 and I candled my eggs. All have a dark mass inside but not seeing the veins except in a light green egg. Can I move the eggs and turn them or will this kill the embryo? I only can fled from the top and bottom because I didn't want to hurt them. Should I look more closely?

Day 5 may be too early, I do 7, 10, and 18. Hold the large end of the egg in your hand and put the flashlight or whatever candling device you are using shined up through the large part of the egg. You will not hurt them if you gently move the egg around, my broods have somehow rolled their eggs to completely different nesting boxes and all have hatched fine! :) This is day 8 for me, too busy to candle yesterday!

I just candled again on day 10. Think I may have pulled one a little too early as when we opened it the embryo was rather large. Looked like a blood ring inside and no movement. We have 26 left out of 36 so I don't guess we doing too bad. Not candling again till day 18

Just went on lockdown. 26 eggs out of 36 made it this far. I have several olive green eggs which I can't see into. They have large air sacks so I left them. Wish us luck

Some days you just have to put on the hat and remind them who they are dealing with. Release the flying monkies!
