    I already did, lol. I'm terrible about it and I candle a lot, but with my candler I can usually see development by day three, sometimes day two with small white eggs. So far at least nine of twelve are coming along :)

    What kind of candler do you use? I use a little mag light flashlight. I can see with it but it's not the greatest.

    I bought a really powerful little flashlight at Walmart about a year and half ago that is over 200 lumens, and that thing lights up anything, even dark marans eggs. I wish I could remember the brand because it's really nice. I know it was $20 or less.
