    I just candeled my Marans eggs at 9 days.
    All 14 have veins and swimming embryos.
    This is my first time incubating!!!!

    Oh man. I have one piece of advise for you. DO NOT over candle and once you put them in lockdown SIT ON YER HANDS! I remember my first hatch. Be a good boy/girl.....

    What are you candling your Marans with? Mine were so dark I couldn't see anything the first time. I have some shipped eggs now I would love to be able to see.
