Candling Without Handling!
The MDS Probe-Lite is an invaluable tool for the Aviculturist in determining the viability of eggs in an incubator or in the nest box, without touching.
The bright, recessed incandescent bulb at the end of the flexible metal shaft is protected from breakage and is placed flush with the egg surface for inspection. Locate hairline fractures that cannot be seen without a good egg candler and repair the damage to facilitate normal development and hatching. Fertility or infertility can be determined by the 5th day of incubation allowing for the removal of unproductive individuals. The Probe-Lite is manufactured to withstand harsh conditions, indoor or out, and is powered by 2 "AA", replaceable batteries (included).
Optional replacement bulbs may be purchased with the Egg Candler or as a seperate item.
Note: We have been using the Probe-Lite Egg Candler for years and it is invaluable in reaching eggs in nests of protective parents. The flexible metal shaft and protected bulb let you get the job done safely. We have tried others and go back the Probe-Lite for everyday use.
