Candling Egg Stages

Recommended Posts

I Candled my hen that is on her second round, as pevious post chicks were dead in shell.....

 

i noticed when candling them which first is due on the 8th (yesterday) 6 are fertile out of 7, and noticed 4 have arent all taking the space of the whole egg with about less than 1/4 of egg being

 

hollow....I had this happen before and they never hatch in another nest some time ago.... they should be really dark and not see through right towards hatching time.

 

I moved two still in early stages of fertility to another nest which has dud eggs to see what happens

 

Can someone tell me near hatching what it should look like or stages... Thanks!

i never do it after the one time and i only do that when im being inpatient :rolleyes:

you can clearly tell infertile eggs from fertile after 12 days so i dont believe theirs a need to candle them

 

ive read somewhere that the light can shock and kill the embryos so id rather not risk it unless i have a iffy one that looks either way
