    Here are some Muscovy Duck eggs that have just internally pipped:

    Duck eggs are very easy to candle, especially with the Brinsea OvaView candler. Don't even have to be in a dark room to see them.

    Wow, it's been three days since they pipped internally. Two are now externally pipped, and the third is working on it.

    The candler is neat.I didn't know they sold them.If I hatched eggs a lot,I'd buy one.What about goose eggs,are they easy to candle,too?I don't want more geese but I may not be able to resist trying to hatch a few next year when they lay.

    Lots of people just use a flashlight, and some use their cell phone light! I've only candled a few goose eggs, and I think they are similar to duck eggs, but it's been over five years, so I can't really remember. :(

    Two of the three stalled out, so I had to help them. Of the three, only one pipped an zipped on it's own. Second assist was also "foot over head".
