    I don't know if anyone else stumbled upon this yet... I have a Brinsea Mini Advanced and I accidentally discovered that you can candle eggs through the clear sides... all you need is a bright mini LED flashlight and have the incubator in a dimly lit spot. Just put the air cell end of the egg towards the outside of the incubator. I have doing this for days now.. I have 5 Indian Runners on the brink of hatching and since they are my first ducklings I have been anxious for them to hatch... Once in lockdown I couldn't check them anymore so that just made me more anxious... now I can reassure myself that the little fuzzbals are alive and well without disturbing them [​IMG]

    Wow. That's pretty cool all right. But I don't have a Brinsea Mini so can't try it for myself.
    Good luck with your ducklings. Make sure to keep your humidity up high for them!
