    Ok I am on day 7 and I candled some eggs but I cant see anything for the life of me. What am i doing wrong. All I can see is darkness in the eggs. It is like a blob or something in the egg. Are they bad eggs maybe? THis is nerve wracking. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    What are you expecting to see? When we candled eggs last that's what we saw; a dark mass. The dark masses did turn into chicks, in the end. [​IMG]

    What color eggs do U have? What type or brand of light are U using? I candled 16 brown eggs first of the week and they looked good veins running all over with little dark spots. [​IMG] Then you will have the yolk that is dark. Candling is not hard to do. I would do a google search "candling eggs" and you will find enough pics on the first couple of pages that should help alot. [​IMG]
