    I haven't done this in 15 years, but I have some eggs in the bater. I candled them tonight and they look about like a 3 to 5 day old egg according to pics on the net, but they are actually about 9 days old. Should I be concerned?

    I'm new to candling and have looked at web pics, too. I can't answer your question, but wanted to share a link with you (it helped me!) in case you haven't seen it. This is University of Nebraska's 4-H web site with candling pics & videos:
