Hi! I ordered some lovely Marans hatching eggs from a breeder and they arrived in great condition! But I am having two problems. The first, and probably something I should have prepared for, is that dark Marans eggs are very hard to candle! All I can see is darkness inside and the presence or absence of an air cell if I am in total darkness when candling and using an LED light. Does anyone have any tips for difficult to candle eggs? Maybe a certain egg candler they bought that worked really well for them that I could order in the future? I am new to candling and chickens in general, and so this time I probably won't be able to tell much from the eggs. I will try and find rotten ones by smell I guess! The other thing is that the air cell in some of these eggs are very large, and seems to be split. Or at least, that's what I think I was looking at. The air cells are in the fat end of the eggs where they belong but they aren't perfectly round like I've seen in pictures, but they look like two merged bubbles instead of one. Looking from the side, it looks like a butt instead of a nice smooth line! (sorry for the description, I couldn't think of a better way to describe it!) Will these eggs hatch? This seems to occur in most of them, and I realized (too late) that I should have let them sit longer after shipping before I set them under my hen.
