    How should I go about candling eggs in a way that doesn't affect the temp/humidity settings of the incubator?

    I don't think there really is a way. I usually just take a few out at a time candle them then put them back, wait ten minutes and to another set, I've been doing that for a long time with all kinds of species and breeds of bird. Never had anything go wrong.
    Just don't let the eggs sit out to long, a few minutes wouldn't hurt at all, wouldn't suggest more than 5 though.

    Thank you! I was just curious because there seems to be a lot of emphasis on fluctuated temps and candling, but not so much on how quickly to candle without the incubator dipping temps and humidity.
