    Hi it is my first time incubating. I set 50 Cuckoo Maran egg in my incubator a week ago. Today I am going to Candle them. Is it ok to take the them all out of the incubator and candle them. Not sure how long they can be out.
    I have looked at lots of candling pictures, so i am hoping i will know what i am looking for. Any advise from you guys would be greatly appreciated. I am really excited. [​IMG] Thanks Jemmima

    Hey Jemmima it is ok to take them out and candle them yes. Candling can be a little tricky sometimes if the shells are thick. I have issues with it sometimes. But goodluck!!

    Thanks for the advise.
    Candled my 50 Cuckoo Maran eggs yesterday. All doing fine apart from a couple which i think are not fertilized. [​IMG]
