I wanted to check to see if any of my chicken eggs were going to hatch so I took my cel phone and saw a little but not enough to tell much. Then I asked my husband if he had a led flash light because I didn't want to kill the chicks with too much heat.
He did have one that he uses for work. We tried that but it still didn't work well. Then I found out there was a way to make it work even better. I cut a piece of black construction paper and I wrapped it around twice and secured it to the flashlight with a hair band. Then I tried it out with a egg in the fridge and it worked. Yeah!
Update: There are 6 total that are good, 3 for each Mother hen.
