Hi Guys, please help me. I'm in day 16 of a mixed hatch of large breed chicken eggs. I've tried candling them and I'm not sure if they're any good. Some look almost clear but some look quite full and 1 has developed cracks. I'm hoping to take some pictures later, and then I'll post them up here. Any advice gratefully received.

Thanks.

Once you put up some pics we can give you some opinions/advice. The second link that Bay gave you is the page I use for candling. Has great pics for each day.
