I actually prefer my phone flashlight for lockdown time.
I broke my candler that came with my incubator. I accidentally dropped it on the floor, it was that or an egg. I got good flashlights because my husband almost got bit by a copperhead not long ago. His phone flashlight wasn't bright enough to catch it before it came after him. I'm sure it was looking for a chick 😠

I don't do any candling during lockdown except when Kiki says 😁 I did last time and learned a lot
I normally only candle when I am moving the eggs from the incubator to the hatcher. If there is a rotten egg aroma coming from the incubator, I will make an exception to find the rotten egg and remove it.

So you have two different setups... Jealous! I guess I'll get better at incubating then invest in another. I need to try quail.
