    [​IMG] I thought id get a better one later,but might not have to.It works super.

    I finally bought a candler,and am very happy.I tried it on 7 day old hatching eggs and all had veins.It also lights up brown and quail eggsI bought it at stromburgs chickens.It the bright one that shines thru white,blown and quail eggs.Picture is on incubator it,has different rubber tipsThey have a cool light for 16.00, but I got the ec116 powerlux egg candler for36.95.it plugs in wall,lights quail and brown eggs up like a light bulb

    Congratulation on all your eggs having veins :celebrate

    I find a good candler is a must for clear shot of what is going on in eggs. Great to hear you are happy with yours!
    Good luck with your eggs, have a great hatch :thumbsup
