    I've been having a hard time finding the proper candler and yeah I would love to get a sure fire but lowes has the cheapest for 80.00. My dh bought this for me when he was ordering some books from cutler suppley and so we are waiting on it. I wonder if any of you have this or something similar out there.

    I have a large coffee can with a lightbulb mounted in the bottom and a hole cut in the plastic lid-works great-even on Ameraucana eggs. Never hatched any Marans so I'm not sure about those.[​IMG]

    BTW-what kind of a candler does Lowe's sell for $80

    It's a sure- fire flash light. It is probally overpriced but I'm hoping these will work on my marans dark eggs next time i try to incubate.
