    I bought black copper marans eggs off ebay. I candled tonight and seven out of eight have a little black dot moving all around. it is really hard to see since the eggs are so dark. i also have some of them easter eggers due to hatch on the 24th one of the eggs is a dark green and for the life of me i can not see thru it when i candled it. i can see that is has a nice air sack. So i am guessing it is alive.

    It's tough to see in the dark eggs. I usually have better luck at Day 10.

    I was having trouble seeing my marans and welsummers.. Then saw a post about using an old slide projector.

    Got one off craigslist for $10 as I recall.

    Works GREAT for those dark eggs!!!

    Congrats!! Good Fertility there!!
