If setting eggs then a candling lamp is an essential tool.
Candling eggs will identify the fertile from the clear. Saving time and valuable incubation space.
PLUS...it is heaps of fun being able to look into your eggs and watch your peeps grow! The OvaView candling lamp is a very effective low cost all-purpose candling lamp ideal for identifying infertile eggs with pale, plain shells (most species of hen, duck or goose etc.) Battery-powered for convenience and uses high output, high efficiency LED illumination - so no bulbs to replace or concerns about overheating the eggs during an inspection. The OvaView is designed to either be hand-held or can be left on a work surface during use. Supplied with a flexible black ring to seal against the eggshell.
The candling lamp comes with a set of 4 AA batteries but can be used with rechargeable AA batteries.
