Hello friend, thankyou for your question.

Incubation time for a canary egg is 12-14 days.

If you have a hen who has been sitting at least 3 days you can hold the egg up to a light .A new or infertile egg lays clear and the light goes straight through.

A fertile egg displays an embryo and the veins within the egg.

Eventually an egg that is fertile becomes opaque.

Let me know please if you have any questions?

Sincerely,Don
