I have broke 2 good eggs now and I've had enough!! I need a good candler, I have dark Welsummer and Maran eggs. Anyone know which is better, or one to definately NOT get? Thanks!
Before I got an egg candler I just used what ever flashlight was in the house. I now have a Cool-Lite works okay..but it's not the greatest.
i use my snap-on 18V LED light... i can see everything in light colored eggs, and i can see some what in dark eggs... i forgot how many lumens it is... but i know it cost 180 bucks... LOL... my friend uses his stinger LED... that's also a 200 dollar flash light... i was thinking about using my niterider trinewt off my bike... but the battery doesn't last as long as the snap-on light...
this is my first time candling, I'm using my desk lamp!!! lol. it's a 75 watt bulb and it's one that has a bendable neck thing so i can bend if to lie flat with the light facing up. I got a cardboard box that goes over it to block the light, and cut a hole in the top just big enough i can lie the egg on it without it falling through. it might not be the correct way to candle, but i can at least see something moving inside my dark brown eggs!!!

of course, this also told me that mine are a couple days behind where they should be due to the stupid thermometer breaking...
