To candle, is using a pin point, hight intensity candling touch, that you use in a darkened room and hold the egg over the light to see inside the egg.  Day 8 is a good time to see if your eggs are fertile or viable.

I'm at day 24. Should I wait until tomorrow for the last 9? I did have 3 hatch last night.
