    Ok Went to home depot today ( I saw alot of this + different kinds at Lowes, HD just had the sale) and saw this really tiny LED flashlight!!! And then it hit me ...wow this would make an awesome candler!! It was only 5 dollars it comes with 4 extra batteries. It has a flex neck which means I can candle my eggs without even taking the eggs out of the bator! I took some pictures for you guys and here it is [​IMG] warning: I nearly blinded myself because I turned it on while looking at the led bulb...-Feels smart- so dont do that [​IMG]

    It was on the checkout area where the batteries are. If your lazy like me, Just ask them if they have any tiny LED lights [​IMG] oh and I also I saw them at Lowes.

    Its called "Flex LED Flashlight" By Coast. Says it have up to 75 hrs of battery life, up to 100,000 hours of light from LED. It also have a lifetime guarantee lol that ask me to send it in for repair or replacement along with a $5.00 check for shipping and handling and the guarantee does not include batteries.

    Now you had to go and post this so I can see this....! :eek: [​IMG]
    ENABLERS..!!!

    Since I've posted what kind of chickens I really wanted for natural brooding (no feathered feet, no silkies), I've heard people pushing feathered feets, and silky feathers - yes, I said "pushers" [​IMG] ......since then, I've started looking at incubators for breeds I'd like to try on my own that don't go broody.....them darn enablers.....

    Now I've included in my list ...feathered feets.....Cochins and Brahmas, both are excellent parents, I've read, (no silkies), but I do want a Black Crested White Polish roo....can you imagine the pretty hairdos running around? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Now I'll have to sneak off after work to check this lil' light out before I surprise my DF after buying it......Baby...! Look what I was shown on BYC....! I will need this to make sure the eggs are still developing and are healthy! [​IMG] enablers.......y'all are...! [​IMG]
