When candling eggs, is it okay to turn the egg with pointy end up? What is the proper way to do this?
This has been my first experience with eggs. I have been incubating indian runner. I candled both ends and the sides of some just to see what I could see. I started with 42 eggs. Some were not fertile at all. When I left today, I had 8 ducklings out of 30 hatch and the hatch date isn't for another day or so.
I move my egg all over when candling. sometimes it can be hard to see inside of them. this is my first time doing it so i don't know if its the proper way. on day 9+10 and every thing seems to be growing ok.
