Can You Candle Peacock Eggs?

If you’re raising peafowl on your farm or backyard, there must be some ways to know if the eggs are fertile and are able to hatch. This is where candling comes in.

Candling eggs is very important. This technique shows you if an egg is fertilized and lets you monitor embryo development. Thus, you can remove infertile eggs before they rot and contaminate the others.

You can begin candling eggs five days after you start incubating them.

Fertile eggs will have darker spots or veins within the eggs. Any eggs that glow translucent are categorized as infertile.

When purchasing a candler, find one that allows you to customize the intensity of the light and is suited to be used with different sizes of eggs.
