Candling eggs is an operation that allows us to verify if the egg is fertile and to see its development during the incubation process.
With turtle eggs, that absolutely must not be moved or turned, exception made for the few hours immediately after the laying and only to be carried to the incubator, we’ll use a small LED light, kept in touch with the egg shell, in a dark room.
In order to make it easier, if you’re lucky and you assisted the laying, you can clean the eggs with warm water.
A clean egg, like the one in the pictures, will be easier to check.
