Please explain when and how to candle eggs.
This is a thread about candling eggs.
Hope it helps you.
If you are new to candling (as I was) I had a very very hard time making my own. To toot my own horn, I'm quite handy with most everything, but for some reason, it was really hard for me to figure it out.
Then, I came across one of these:
WOW, what a huge difference. Before I got that what I was doing could hardly be called candling. I tried a lot of different things, a flashlight in a water bottle covered with aluminum foil to block and direct the light, a cardboard box with a powerful light in it and a hole cut. Nothign worked! Then, with that little tool, the whole world (of the inside of the egg) was illuminated for me.
I can't recommend it enough and for less than $20, it's one of the best tools I've ever owned.
Hi i am new to this site. I have 4 chickens one of whih went broody, she has been sat on some fertilised duck eggs for about 4 weeks now, one of which hatched yesterday, there are 2 more eggs under her but currently showing no signs of hatching. Is there any way to tell if they are alive or not? thanks
