    all you need to do for good candling pics is take a flashlight (stronger the better) then what I did was cut a circle of Cereal box cardboard the diameter equal to that of the flashlight. Then i cut a hole in the center of cardboard same size as small egg point. Stick egg on light, snap a pic. [​IMG] got yerself a good candler
    MAKE SURE THE FLASHLIGHT IS STRONG BECAUSE ONE OF MY EGGS THAT HATCHED I THOUGHT WAS INFERTILE BECAUSE I USED A WEAK FLASHLIGHT. good thing i didnt give up on him!!!

    Lots of good luck! [​IMG] Don't worry too much about it. There are quite a few threads on here about incubating waterfowl that should help you. I incubated ducks for the first time this year, and now they're my favorites to do [​IMG]
