    Hello! Tonight at 9 PM will be 6 full days of my first incubation. I have a few questions about candling.

    - What day is the best time to candle?

    - Since this is my first time candling, would I be able to see much on day 6/7?

    - I'd like to remove the eggs that aren't progressing. How do I ensure that I'm not removing good eggs?

    - Is there something else I should know/do?

    Thanks in advance!!!

    Thanks a lot!

    So, if they don't look like this should I remove them? Or should I just wait it out?

    It should be pretty obvious.
