What does the term candling mean? Is that when you flip the egg?
Candiling is when you put a light on the big side of the egg to see if there is any development of a baby chick. It is vary fun!! lol hope this helps you!!!
How can you tell if there is development? And is this a necessary procedure?
not really necessary but frees up space...you will see it....at first there are veins and such then you will actually see movement...works best for new folks to use light colored eggs and I can't see nothing in coturnix eggs!
Haha ok thank you for your help. You were wonderful and fast.
Quote:IMO, This should be done at least once during incubation (day 10-14) if not the bad/dud eggs can explode in the bator and cause issues for other eggs, and can be a very stinky mess.
