Candling on day 6 is fine. I've candled as early as day three before, and have still been able to tell if the eggs are alive and fertile or infertile/dead.

is their anyway to know if they are good what am i looking for? and how strong does my flashlight need to be? half my eggs are brown and one is blue so my normal flashlight isn't cutting it
