    I have some eggs that when I shine them, it is nothing but the light in there. While others seem like they are full because they are darker. Is this the egg coloring? Because one is light and the other is dark. But some are dark eggs and they are light and the opposite... They are copper marans eggs and I got them yesterday! So they should be hatching around.... the 13..?

    if you just got them yesterday then even fertile eggs should look clear. I'd say set them in the incubator and try candling in a week or so and see if there's a difference in what you see.
