    ( I dont have a good bright flash light)

    I was candling 5 eggs and I noticed

    2 of the eggs the light shined through....

    3 of them it was pure dark

    does that mean the ones that shined through have no chicks in them, or could it be my bad flash light????

    Oh. and then I did, Another broodies eggs,

    and 2 of the eggs shined through
    and 2 were complety dark?
