candle an egg from your refrigerator and compare, if it sort of glows like the undeveloped egg then that is likely what you have. Did you post about this on another thread I answered? Sounds familiar, I let mine go until day 10 before candling. Also I don't know how often you are candling but I feel less is better, the more the incubator is closed and your hands are off the eggs the better. Try to resist the urge to candle every day or 2 just do it once or twice, that is my philosophy anyways
