    Is it possible to candle eggs too much? I have a feeling between myself and my two kids, its going to happen. We're all very eggscited about our babies and want to watch their growth.

    You don't want to get the eggs over chilled. Remember the real momma hen only gets off the nest once a day to eat drink and poo. Try and hold the candling to a few eggs once a day and i think they woul dhave a better chance. Just my opinion and others may know different.
