    What kind of eggs? You really don't need to candle at all, they rarely 'explode' if they are bad. I usually check them about day 15 (coturnix) to take out any clear ones before I move them to the hatcher, otherwise I leave them alone unless I'm checking for fertility, which then I'll check them around day 5.
