    Well, it is day 7 and I candled my cream eggs and saw an embryo and it moved!!!

    I can't see ANYTHING in my blue, green or brown eggs. How do people candle those??? I have got to discard the bad eggs on day 10. I am terrified of an egg blowing up! LOL

    I had some clear eggs and if I see nothing by day 10 am I supposed to toss those?

    THANK YOU!!

    Get an LED flashlight.They work great on darker eggs.
    Any hardware, building supply store probably carry them, as well as Walmart

    Good luck on your hatch.
