    I can take pics later of the bottom section and inside of mine if ya want... the latches really keep it together for moving and storing, but the big thing I like is the side door for placing the egg... I know how clumsy I can get so setting it down inside something is just asking for me to drop an egg on the light hole... :gig

    I have eggs going into lockdown tonight and Calls on day 8, I'll take pics tonight... most of the candling you don't need to close the door... door is more to cut out any excess light if needed...

    I'd really like to see pics of a candled egg in it, if you think it would work.


    I was thinking that it would be easier and quicker with an opening rather than a full door.

    The top of the top section doesn't open up so the door is only way to set the egg inside... door swings at the touch of a fingertip... door will stay open for most all my candling I bet, so easy to just swap eggs out...

    Heck, I don't know. I just know a sizzle is a frizzled-silkie. But how do you produce one, unless you breed it with a frizzle, and silkies aren't normally frizzled, right? [​IMG]
    Anyway, I think it looks more like the daddy. But I guess we will see...

    And yes, I know about the frizzle to frizzle... kinda crazy like the crests in ducks. So cute, but also so messed up!



    Great job on the drawings! I might just have to snatch those. [​IMG]

    yes ma'am.

    just thinking I'll trade the top open for the front open approach, but leave the side little opening for cadling really dark eggs, or if repositioning is needed.
