    I didn't know this until I tried it, but you can use one of those little red light pointers, aim it at your eggs in the hatcher through the plexiglass window, and see what's going on inside the aircell w/o opening the bator.

    That's kind of COOL! I can see a pipper squiggling around inside one of the duck eggs!

    Quote:Yes! I have a super cheap one and if you shine the light at the tippy top of the egg just right, it lights up the whole air cell.

    I will have to dig through my kids rooms to find one!! [​IMG] They love to "exercise" our black lab with the lazer pens. I am going toybox diving right now to find one and try it! My eggs are due to hatch on the 11th.
