    muscadine, al.
    Last night I candled my first egg. I finally figured out how to do it. I would never of been able to figure out how if it wasn't for all ya'll wonderful people at BYC. You guy's are great. 7 out of the 10 egg's had movement. [​IMG]:fl:fl:fl:fl Oh I hope all 7 hatch. Also where is the most economical place to get a red light and about what wattage should I be looking at?????? Keep up all the helpful and kind work. You guy's rock. PEACE

    check walmart, but you really dont need them. Never had one and pecking is not a issue here.

    And as for the red light, you can get the setup at the farm supply store... or such. Just be sure to use a thermometer too, so you don't overdue it... or them ( [​IMG] ). Might only need it for a couple weeks, if the weather is warm.

    All the best... and yep, these folks on this forum are the best!!!!
