Welcome to Backyard Chickens!

You need a very good candler and to wait until day 7 or 10. With very dark eggs, you often only see veins in the air cell

WELCOME alot of information & knowledgeable BYC Members.

It's a bit early to candle, Pork Pie Ken gave you a good link to check out. When you candle it's best done when it's really dark, in a closet is good. I've read alot use their phone light, LED light works great but I've used regular bulbs just make sure the battery is not weak. Have fun!
