    I honestly am not able to see much in mine. I do candle but just watch the size of the air sac, it should get bigger over time with developement. If it isn't growing it's usually a dud. I've heard of some people being able to candle but they're usually using a home made candler like one from a projector or something.
    Good luck with the Marans they are my addiction [​IMG]

    Pitch dark room, high lumens flashlight, homemade thingy to close out all light except from a 1 inch spot CLOSELY fitting the egg.
    Then maybe you can see shadows around Day 14.
    Patience, Grasshopper!
