    I have some beautiful eggs from Miss P in my bator on day 7ish... Well, I can't see in them LOL and I'm using my maglite!!! I can see in one, but not a single other egg so should I just check for stinkies and let them be or should I come up with another candler, like what?!

    I tried using a maglite to candle with but had the same problem with the dark eggs. After think about it I tried my brooder light with a 100 watt regular bulb in it and a piece of cardboard with a hole cut in it. It works great, I can see in all the eggs I have tried including eggs that are dark olive color. You will need someone to help hold it together while you look unless you can come up with a way for it to stay in one piece tho. Good luck. [​IMG]

    I tried several flashlights and nothing...bought a cool little "egg candler" on eBay for 18.00 and WOW...my son loves using it, my wife loves it and it works perfect. Search egg candler on the bay, to me very much worth the money.
