Candling Eggs - Pictures!

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

I love candling my eggs.  I use my projector because it is bright but cool light.  Here are photos of 3 results of eggs candled after 5 days in the incubator.

What else can you use to candle?  I'd like to take a peek at some eggs... would be a good thing for my homeschooled kiddos to see.

Thanks!  I think we'll take a peek at the two eggs that I think my broody pushed out of her nest this morning.

I am so glad you posted this post.. We were just last night trying to candle and did not have a bright enough light.  We have a projector.. I will be using it to candle.

2 children, 3dogs, 2 cats and now 65 chickens.   Love them all, but the chickens are cheapest entertainment.
