I know what candling is for i'm just unsure why we do it. Is it also to simulate the times the mother hen gets off the nest? Does it hurt the other eggs to have unfertilized eggs in there with them? I do candle and will continue to but it just doesn't make that much sense to me and i feel it would be better for the others to just let them incubate nonstop at a steady temp. Am i wrong? Why? This may be a dumb question but i'm just trying to learn. Thanks guys.
