Thanks tomorrow will be day 4 and I really just want to make sure they are fertile and I guess if I can't tell I'll try again in 7 days.
Thanks again.

For light colored eggs ~ Candle around day 7

For dark colored eggs ~ Candle around day 10-12



You can candle around day 3-4 with light colored eggs, but Your

not going to be able to see as clear. Also be sure your light is bright,

some people candle with lights that are not bright enough, and can't

see any development, then throw the eggs out thinking they're not

fertile.


Heres a picture of candling a light colored egg around day 7-9

I could tell at day 4 if something was happening. You can try candling an egg before it goes in bator just to compare what you see in an egg that had already been in bator. you can see a difference in the two eggs. just don't throw them away right away, wait till you recheck them at day 7 or so. (if you candle before day 7) some people don't candle that early or very often or at all, I like to candle to see whats going on. lol Good luck, ~Julie~
