    Today was day 7 and was time to candle the eggs, I mostly have brown eggs and can see the veins pretty well but the EE egg shells are much thicker than the brown eggs and I can't see through the shell, how can I tell if it is developing or not? Should I just leave them till they are done hatching or is there a way to tell if they are developing?
