    These eggs are so dark chocolate colored that I can't get much light to go through.

    Any advice? Or is it not possible to candel them with any accuracy?

    marans eggs are tough to candle. i never had any luck with that and always had to wait 21 days for my surprise... although it's possible, i never had an exploded rotten egg.
