My girls went from just wanting to do Chicken 4H books this year to also doing egg and chick for the 8 yr old and Embryology for the 15 yr old. We tried to make our own candler and it didn't turn out well, so we've been using the brightest flash light app for my android phone. It's working good but I'd like something better for our next set of eggs when they will start their project books.

So I was looking for opinions about the best egg candler?

THANKS in advance to everyone who replies be sure I'll be sitting here reading. My girls and I are learning so much from this site and others that we've been reading nonstop lately. Just by seeing what others are doing we get a good idea of what we can try for our own small but growing flock of chickens.

I use my 7 year old daughter's Disney Princess LED flashlight from Walmart. It's surprisingly bright and only cost a couple bucks.

The Ovascope is what I was looking at thinking it would be easier for the girls to capture images onto their laptops using their webcams so they can then use the images in their project books or presentations at fair or clubs.

I do have a rechargable spotlight maybe I'll try that or snatch hubby's little flash light out of his work bag (he's a fire fighter/paramedic and keeps one on his helmet) and see what works best.

Any tips on taking photos of your candled eggs without the ovascope? Also anyone know if it's okay to do a quick candle every day or every other day?
