 I thought id get a better one later,but might not have to.It works super.


I finally bought a candler,and am very happy.I tried it on 7 day old hatching eggs and all had veins.It also lights up brown and quail eggsI bought it at stromburgs chickens.It the bright one that shines thru white,blown and quail eggs.Picture is  on incubator it,has different rubber tipsThey have a cool light for 16.00, but I got the ec116 powerlux egg candler plugs in wall,lights quail and brown eggs up like a light bulb

Congratulation on all your eggs having veins celebrate.gif

I find a good candler is a must for clear shot of what is going on in eggs. Great to hear you are happy with yours!
Good luck with your eggs, have a great hatch thumbsup.gif

I have the standard Brinsea one ~
It works well and is easy to use. Brinsea also make one that has an even brighter light but the standard suited me for my needs.

There is also some great articles in the learning centre on making a home made one.
