November 6, 2006 – Egg Candler

One of the nifty devices we use is an egg candler to help discover eggs with hairline cracks or to see when we are incubating viable eggs.

This is a picture of a “good egg.” You just put the candler (a light bulb on a handle) on the egg in a dark place.

Here’s a picture of a cracked egg. The cracks jump right out at you with the candler.
