I'm so sorry.... these things happen. Thanks for sharing... I am candleing on Sunday and will either do it sitting down with a towel on my lap or over the sink with a thick folded towel to pad it.

I am so sorry ... I know your pain. I did that my very first time incubating ever... dropped an egg on the hardwood floor on DAY 17!! I had the egg in my hand and was about to candle it. My cell phone was in my hip pocket, and it went off and vibrated and I jumped. Dropped the egg on the floor, candling flashlight went flying in the opposite direction. The cracked open when it hit the floor & only a little bit of blood came out. I couldn't bear to open in the rest of the way and look. I took it into the backyard and finished it off and felt horrible for about a week. I still feel like doodoo when I think about it.

So sorry. I have thought about that when I have candled mine. What if I should drop one??? It hasn't happened yet but probably there are more people who have candled and had it happen.
