    I decided to try the lamp under box candler...It worked GREAT!! Here's my results!
    16 Silkie Eggs-2 candled clear...(wait for it...)14 had veins!! 4 of them even moved for me!!
    16 Frizzle Eggs-7 candled clear...9 had veins!! 2 of them moved for me!!
    And, dang it...My homemade candler doesn't work on your ameracauna eggs, Dipsy!! So those might be a mistery!!

    Day 7!
  4. That's a LOT of candling [​IMG]
    Great to hear the Silkie eggs are looking good --- with wigglers! That's seems like an unusually high # of clears from the Frizzle pen, tho. I hope the ones growing, will keep it up [​IMG]
    The Am' shells are just plain hard-to-see-thru.
    I was cracking some blues and greenies the other day, and the shells are thicker than brown shells and white shells.

    Good luck and I'll be looking forward to the next candling report [​IMG]

    I thought so too (about the frizzles) so I kept the #s you wrote on them (in case you wanted them!)...I'm just REALLY glad I've got some moving! That was a first for me, and it really made my day!! Thanks again, Lisa!
