    So I have 10 EE and 5 silky eggs in our incubator. I was able to use my flashlight to check the silky eggs but nothing I try works on the EE eggs. I have tried over 5 different flashlights, and no I do not have the 'candling' light so I was hoping there is something else I can use. :( (The flashlights work on my brown eggs too)
    I read that if you do not remove the eggs that aren't developing they can explode! I'm borrowing the incubator so I really do not want that to happen!

    TIA

    1st. They will not explode that is a rumor
    2nd. Do you not see any darkness at all other than the yolk?
    3rd. Do not worry it is ok!
    4th. I would use a heat lamp and see if you can see it.

    Good luck!
