    Hello all! Quick question about candling eggs. We have some darker eggs as well as Ameraucana eggs in the bator and they are a pain to candle. Does anyone have a suggestion for a good, inexpensive candler? Maybe something homemade or just one I can buy? I have always used a mini mag flashlight and it's perfect for light colored eggs, but anything brown(even light brown) or blue is almost impossible! Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!! [​IMG] Thanks!

    I use a small LED flashlight. You can get them at WalMart for under $20.00. Mine was a gift.

    I use a Mini Mag Light it's so small it fits right on the top of the egg.

    Not expensive it was less than $10
