    You can candle you marans eggs. I did mine, but you have to wait until around the 14th day usually before you can see any movement, and then some folks can't. I've had a hard time with the green ones also, but again, around the 14th day. Good luck!

    I just candled mine today, because I thought I ruined them with to high of heat, but I saw the air cell and what looked to be veins and today is only day 3 for me. Just make sure you have a pitch black room with a super bright light that your using to candle. marans eggs are sooooo hard to candle!! GOOD LUCK!!!
