    What do you look for when Candling hatching eggs?
    I did notice where some eggs were hard to see through and some had an air pocket on the bottom of the egg and 2 were slightly cracked and not oozing anything (wouldnt notice it if I didnt candle it)
    Keep in mind these are Quail eggs...

    any advice is helpful!!
    Thank you!

    Quail are darn near completely impossible to see anything in, especially those with spots. The white eggs are easier.

    Quote:Yeah I have a few with almost no spots but on a few even with spots I see nice size air pockets on the bottom which from the website she posted above should be good! But some of the really dark brown ones I cant see anything!!
