well go in a dark room no lights on and if you are using a candeling product, switch it on and put it on the egg the light should be able to see through many eggs except from CPQ sometimes but you are looking for some red lines and they are the blood veins and the placenta of a plant that give the chick all the nutrients and things it needs from the egg yolk. if you see nothing its infertile, what eggs are you candeling.

I personally don't bother candling Jap eggs as incubation is just under 2 and half weeks. Also I find it impossible to make anything out with the mottling on the shell. I do an autopsy at the end of the incubation, once the chicks have hatched.

A lot easier to candle chicken and duck eggs.
