    hey there!
    A flashlight, to me at least wouldn't be such a good idea as the heat foundation in your incubator, for it is more meant for light it does not produce enough heat to hatch fertilized eggs. Although you can use a very bright flashlight for egg candling, although for that process I would still use a more stable heating source. Honestly the easiest way to hatch eggs is to buy a nice sturdy incubator from the company brinsea. In all flashlights wouldn't do so good for egg incubation....in my opinion.

    here are some links on how to candle and where to buy incubators
