    I use an LED light and put it on the fat end (where the air cell is).... I get the best view that way

    Ty. I'll try again in a few days. I don't want to disturb my bossy little Beatrix. These little eggs are for my kiddos. Great learning experience! I wanted to check them before I candled them for the kids. I didn't want to show them a dud. I'll try to post better pics this weekend.

    Thank you for your help =)[​IMG]

    Aww :) this is our first year with chickens. We love them. They are very addictive! We started out with 6 and somehow ended up with 17! We want to get some easter eggers next spring. I love the pretty eggs. My 6 year old gets excited to see our one little bantam Easter egger lay her pretty baby blue egg. With our 3 little ones and my 2 nieces and my nephew these 2 little eggs already have lots of love to jurisprudence them thriving :)
