    Hello everyone!
    I am currently incubating some Ameracuana eggs with very thick shells and the flashlight I usually use to candle doesn't seem to be working as well on these eggs. Does anyone have any suggestions about good flashlights or candlers that work well on dark, thick shells? I've found a couple of fancy candlers for upwards of 45 dollars so I was just curious if anyone uses others that aren't so expensive.

    I just recently bought the Titan high intensity egg candler for dark shells. I am really happy with it. It works excellent on the dark shells. Prior to this I had always used a homemade one which always worked well with the lighter eggs but gave me nothing with the darker eggs
