    The best days to candle the first time is around day 7......You will see veining and a heart beat after that....


    Best of luck.....

    I candled last night which was Day 6 and I could definitively see an eye in each egg, but I couldn't see any veining. This is my first hatch, but I do think the ability to candle well is highly dependent on a great light source and a relatively light egg. My eggs are RIR, so they're brown but not dark.
