Do you candle your eggs before you sell them?

    I was just wondering if everyone candled their eggs before you sold them to see if their are any blood spots?

    Aren't they perfectly ok to eat even if there is a blood spot?

    Of topic, but does anyone have issues with eating eggs that are fertilized?

    No I do not candle them, I never let them sit under a hen. I collect my eggs a few times a day. I spoon the blood spot out, and if you have a rooster all eggs are fertile.

    AS long as they don't sit under a hen for any length of time, you shouldn't have to candle them. And blood spots just happen, even with store bought eggs....
