Easiest way I've found is to use either an iPhone flashlight (my android doesn't seem to do as good) or just a regular LED bulb flashlight (like ones u can get at register at TSC) and despite everything I've read saying to put the bulb at the small end, I think it's easiest to do from the air cell end and I don't have to flip my egg upside down that way..it's really simple. .I promise..lol..
Here's a blue egg being candle with an iPhone. .it was to show someone the weird air cell, but blue eggs are generally the hardest to see thru so using it as ]
Thanks, Wildhens! I will definitely use your method the with our next batch of chicks! Now that this little group seems to be doing well, I think I will be a little more confident next time.
I am so relieved that Cupcake seems to be a great mom so far. We still haven't fully decided what to do with her broody sister.... I think I may buy some day old chicks for her to raise (someone suggested it, and it seems like a good idea).
