1-15. ARRANGEMENT OF EQUIPMENT
To candle eggs efficiently, the equipment must be conveniently arranged. (See
figure 1-7.) See Lesson 3 for definition of terms and further information.
a. Place empty egg tallying tray in a convenient location (often to the left of the
candler). This tray will be used for grade A Quality eggs only. See figure 1-8.
b. Place egg breakout plate in a convenient location (often to the immediate
right of the candler). See figure 1-8. The plate should be clean and is used to break out
eggs to determine quality and/or to verify suspected loss. The plate must be thoroughly
cleaned between breakings.
c. Place two empty egg tallying trays to the right of the breakout plate. The two
empty trays will be used for tallying eggs of less than grade A Quality. See Lesson 4 for
a suggested method of setting up tallying trays.
d. Place individual egg scale on shelf above candler.
e. Place sample eggs, withdrawn from the case or cases, beneath candler.
