  3. you need to “candle” that is,shine a light through the eggs after about a weeks incubation,when the fertile eggs should shoe signs of is important the light is a COOL bulb,but other than that,it is a fairly easy thing to do ,something most poultry books/information sites etc would fill you in onComment by bonnie – November 23, 2008 @ 4:26 pm
