calculating weight loss in sample

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Can someone tell me how to accurately calculate egg weight loss when using a sampling?

I've weighed 10 chosen eggs for a total of 21 oz. I presume when I do my first candling, 1 or 2 will be tossed. Do I just weigh the tossed egg and subtract it from my total? I thought the sampling method would be more accurate but now I'm not so sure.hmm.png

Ok- I'm officially a ding-a-ling. I found the answer on poultrykeeper.com. You're taking an average so it doesn't matter. Duh! big_smile.png
