    So I have a bit of a problem I am incubating chicken eggs and I can not see at all. Candling won't work it's very hard to see through the eggs shell and it's always a problem.
    Okay also what is it I'm looking for
    20180320_220726.jpg . So what does this mean ? On the yellow one you can clearly see something. But what am I looking for?

    You won't see anything until at least four days in. I prefer to leave them alone for the first week, so as to let the veins develop properly.

    That is perfectly normal.

    How to candle

    By day 7 you'll see veining like a spider web in eggs that are developing
