    What day do you usually candle your eggs on? My Silkie eggs are on day 5.

    Give it til day 10 and it'll be obvious if someone's in there or not.

    I candle around day 7 and 14. Give or take. I think this batch I waited until Day 16.

    Good luck with your eggs [​IMG]

    I candle on day 4-5 and mark questionable ones, but don't toss until at least day 14, unless there is a bacterial ring. If you have a good candler and a dark room you should see something in your silkie eggs. Good luck!
