I am trying to candle blue american eggs and can't see anything. I built a box with a 65 watt floot light and put a hole in the top but can't see anything.

Advice, previous threads or other links would be appreciated.

thanks,

I use a small table lamp with a 15 watt flourescent (corkscrew looking) bulb. The bulb is not nearly as hot as a conventional bulb. I cut a hole about the size of a quarter in the bottom of a dark plastic cup and place it over the Bulb. To force all the light upward, I wrap the cup and bottom of the bulb with tin foil. Cheap and effective. I can see through brown and blue eggs with this set-up. Just make sure the room is dark.
