    Hii all!

    I'm going into my third incubation batch, and since I had trouble on with this last time, it seems prudent to ask you all... Finding the air sack on the dark eggs seemed nearly impossible. Are there any specific tricks you can share?

    Thanks!

    Darker the egg the harder to candle.
    Really bright light in a really dark room (a windowless one works for me) is the only thing I can suggest.
