Egg Candling and the Law

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Today I attended an egg candling class in Calhoun Georgia  Presented by the Dept of Agriculture approx 2 hrs long no fee and very informative  We had some lecture, a written test (study material provided), candled 4 flats of eggs and there was no fee  If all goes well, you are presented with a certificate  There were 4 classes and all were full  The drive up and back was beautiful  Great dayyippiechickie.gif

Wow sounds like a good class. What is the certificate for?

Cool!  I wish I could find something like that in our area, I kinda just taught myself (and then I got some help from FGE here too). 

 

I can't wait to get a candler.  Stupid led flashlight isn't very ideal to say the least.......

Allows you to market eggs to consumers  In Georgia you can sell you eggs to individuals without a license but if you want to sell at a flea market  or selling more than 5 cases to anyone you need the certificate

Thats great. I think I'm going to check into our Co-op Ext. Ag. dept. and see if they have anything like that.

Hi,

 

I am interested in  taking the class.  May  I ask if the class is for beginners egg owners or advances egg owners?  My memory is not great I am worry I won't pass the test.

 

Thanks for the input.

This is a really old thread. I suggest you contact your county extension agent and talk to them. This is the kind of stuff they should be able to look up.

This candling is to look for egg flaws such as blood spots or meat spots before you sell them. Commercial operations do this electrically. It is not to see how an incubated egg is developing, but I bet you can really see in there with the candling equipment they use.

This too shall pass.  It may pass like a kidney stone, but it will pass.
