    I've tried the homade flashlight thing and it doesn't work.
    What is the best egg candler and where to get one?

    I use an old slide projector. It has a very bright bulb and works great.

    Get the smallest maglite (It takes 1 AAA battery). It's super skinny, and the beam only goes into the egg (even on Serama eggs). Also, make sure you're in the darkest spot possible [​IMG]

    I just bought a $25 Coleman MAX from Walmart. It is small like the small mags, but it has 115 luminaries (sp?) I could even see through my dark chocolate maran eggs with it. I love it!!!
