This is my first try at a hatch. When do you candle and what do you look for? Do you candle the eggs under a broody or just in the incubator? Is it ok to just leave them be and see what happens and not candle?

You can candle for both i believe. This is my first hatch to. What was recomended to me was not to candle until day 18. I am using an incubator. Opening and closing the lid alot is a no no LOL. I did candle 1 egg real quick when i went to add more water to my bator. It was developing Yay! I am too afraid to candle any more right now so i am just waiting until day 18 when i take them out of the turner. They are gonna hatch if they are gonna hatch. might as well play it safe and wait. Thats just my opinion
