Such a hard time candling my brown eggs

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

This is my first time trying to hatch my own eggs. I am on day 9 and I was trying to candle, my candler works great puts a lot of light through the egg, but out of the 8 the only ones I can really see anything in is the two light brown ones. The others I can barely see anything. I think I can see the embryo moving around, but is there any tricks or tips to candle the dark brown eggs?

I think they're sometimes just impossible HAHA

If they aren't stinky or weeping fluid just leave them in - it would suck to toss a good one just because you aren't sure big_smile.png

Thats what I do, keep them if they don't stink or weep, then be surprised when they hatch big_smile.png

I have three Marans eggs in the "questionable" section of my bator - and lo and behold I saw two of them moving yesterday (day 15) so went ahead and marked them viable smile.png Pays to wait it out!
