    When incubating the eggs are you supposed to have the eggs in a dark room or can they be in a lighted room????... I have an automatic incubator...with no internal lights.... I am just not sure.

    Eggs can be incubated in a lighted area, or a dark room. The embryos in the egg don't care until they hatch. One advantage of having a dark room is that it makes candling easier.
