I would say candle at 7 days and if anything looks possbile leave it and check again in 3 or 4 days. you cant tell immediately if its fertile or not. If they aren't fertile after day 7 and still candle clear i pitch them in the trash.

30 is just to many for 1 roo. Any chance you can pick out about 6-8 of your best and pen seperately with the roo for a couple of weeks. the hens should all be fertile after that.
