Can we start a thread with some BYC hatching inventions & innovations?? I have seen so many cool ideas & creations; egg turners, candlers, devices to add or remove water from 'bator without having to open it, etc., etc.!!! It might be nice to "compile" them, kinda like how the home-made incubators, or brooders, or coops, are already together in "collections" for people to browse through... Here's one to start: It's a cheap way to modify a flashlight into a candler... I used a small LED flashlight and "foam pipe insulation". You only need a couple inches of it, and it is CHEAP.. A 6 foot section is only $3 at Home Depot. The insulation comes in different internal diameters, I believe this one is 3/4". Just put the flashlight into the piece of insulation, works really well for me; the insulation directs the light beam very nicely, PLUS keeps the egg from conking into the hard edges of the flash light! Here's some pix, including my DD "modeling" proper candling technique !!
