So i keep trying to candle my porous eggs im incubating but there is so many spots in that i see i can tell if anything is there! I see a darker spot which is the yolk other wise its sooooooooo hard to tell!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I need to candle them now its there 6th day and if i dont get them candled they will explode in my incubator!!!! I NEED HELP NOW!!
They won't explode unless they are off and in all the years I've hatched eggs I've had exactly one explode. It's not that common a mishap :). Give the eggs another day or 3 and candle again. You should be able to tell by then if they are viable. And if they look off sniff them. A rotten egg will smell pretty strong if intact, trust me, you'll know. Good luck with the hatch!
