Tools Used in Animal Science Agriscience Applications
Poultry Industry A Candling light is used to view the interior of eggs to detect blood spots. "Farmers would bring in eggs in big buckets and we would take the eggs downstairs and 'candle' them -- that is: we'd hold them up to a light to see if they were good eggs or bad eggs and then we'd have to sort them out as to size and color; brown eggs in one place, white eggs in another, and in-between eggs in yet another place. Then they were put into crates and shipped to different parts of the country. ~Egg Candling Story
