Bulloch County Extension

Egg Candling Class – Washington County

Georgians who want to produce and offer for sale shell eggs shall comply with the Georgia Egg Law and obtain and egg candling certificate in order to be able to sell eggs to the consumer.  Each egg candler, for eggs offered for sale, shall obtain a certification from the Department of Agriculture at no cost, after demonstrating to the satisfaction of the department his/her capability and qualifications as an egg candler.

An egg candling certification is obtained by successfully completing an Egg Candling Class, which includes a written examination and a hands-on candling examination, which are both administered by GDA representatives.  There is no fee for the class, but pre-registration is required.
