Hello all, I'm new to the forum and have a few questions about incubating and candling as this is my first time. Someone told me that my brown eggs should start to turn white eventually but they have not. Is this correct? They are at the 10th-11th day of incubation. I tried to candle them this morning but couldn't see anything but pores. I don't think I was doing it right. I had a spotlight which I placed the egg on top of then placed my hands around the egg to shield the light. Would it be easier to place a piece of cardboard on top of the spotlight with an egg shaped hole? I'm fairly certain there is something going on as the eggs are a lot heavier than they were a week ago but I want to make sure it's a good something A little background on myself also...these eggs/incubator are actually at my son's daycare. I provided everything for them so the kids can watch nature (sort of). I have 9 at home already. 1 Turken, 1 White Rock hen, 1 White Rock rooster (soon to go buh-bye), 1 Buff Orp. pullet, 1 Blue Andalusion pullet, 2 Rhode Island Red pullets, and 2 Araucana pullets. The pullets still have about 3 or 4 weeks until they will go outside with the big girls. I look forward to any help, thank you!
