The candler that was used is a Magicfly Egg Candler.

Why Candle?
Candling allows you see the development of eggs from day one to before hatch, remove possible exploders, rottens, and eggs that stopped development. It also allows you to see cracks in eggs before incubating, (which should be tosses or kept to eat instead) and if the egg is a double yolker.

I have posted eggs on different days of development to show they're progress. Please tell me if there's anything you think I should add, and feel free to ask any questions about incubating, whether it be with a broody or a 'bator.

This probably should have been a article, but...........:lol::cool:

Seriously though, let me know what you think!

Cool!
Can you ALWAYS see something in a day 2 egg? I candled mine and see nothing... Should I give up?
Day 4 or 5 is a good day to candle. If the temp is slightly higher, the eggs develop faster. Thats why sometimes a broody hen harches her chicks a day or days later than 21 days.
