so far mine are losing weight at the same rate... there are three that I am 99.9% sure are duds... the only difference I have noticed between them and good eggs is that one of the duds tends to feel like it sloshes a bit when I turn it.. another made a rather rude sound when I picked it up today .. I sniffed it to make sure it wasn't smelling rotten.. it wasn't.. but there isn't a chick in there that would make a low burping sound like this egg did.. sounded more like Homer Simpson after drinking a few too many beers.. lol

 

I moved all three suspected duds to their own bator... just in case one decides to go nasty on me when I'm not looking..

I have no intent of hatching emu eggs in the near future but I respect the laboratory like precision this group displays.

 

good luck to all of you.

lol.. I don't know about the others.. but I am a compulsive note taker... I love having data and as much info as I can find .. drives my husband nuts sometimes.. though I think over the years he has gotten used to my record keeping and sometimes off the wall experiments
