How much can I candle during hatching phase??? Im so excited I have to keep looking!!:lol
I just do it 3x. I think you can mess up their eyes by candling too much.
Everybody has their own opinion about this
I've read so many different opinions, but I have my own.
In my opinion, it doesn't hurt the eggs to candle often. I candled my last bunch whenever
I wanted to. Every other day, everyday, then I'd skip a few days. I had the BEST hatch I've
ever had in my life, and I can't tell you how many times I've hatched chicken eggs! Be gentle
with the eggs when your candling, use a good light, and don't keep them out of the incubator
over 15 minutes a day. Good luck!
I have hatched several eggs and candled a lot, usually I don't candle until at least day 3 or day 4 because its really hard to see anything before that time, my last batch, I candled everyday after the 4th day because just I love watching how much they grow in such a short time. Of course the time doesn't seem short when your waiting for the little buggers to come out. I usually don't candle after day 18 because of lockdown but after day 24 I will candle to see what the delay is or if there is a problem..
WOW another thread another wonderful learning lesson. I have often wondered what is to much to candle.....THANKS
Yes! Thanks so much..had one hatch This morning and another pipped! Wooopoooo
