    Good morning everyone!

    Well today is day 14 for me eggs! [​IMG] I havent candled in a while so I figured could I candle a few?? The only thing stopping me is I was ready day 14 on the hatching calender and it say that they are positioning towards the blunt end of the egg for hatch day! So could I disrupt this by candling them?? [​IMG]

    Any advice is welcome and appreciated!! [​IMG]

    I don't think it will be a problem, I usually cant help myself and candle almost every day! (until lockdown)

    This is only my second hatch, but I have to admit I've candled 2-3 times already, and it's only day 8.

    Last time I was even worse.

    I did pretty much stop after day 14 though, there wasn't much to see.

    I usually candle on day 14 just once during the hatch. Then cross my fingers and hope for the best.
