    Very simply, candling is shining a bright light through an egg during incubation, so you can see if the embryo inside is alive or not.

    Hi, djwingo! If you haven't had a chance to do so yet, check out the BYC Home page for the 'Learning Center' link.
    It is filled with great info on just about everything you want to know!
    Good luck! [​IMG]
