It then would turn the eggs. am I wrong in my assumption ? I think this is why the two smallest ones are turning
I was thinking about that yesterday and was trying to come up with something to give the ring a little elevation. What about gluing a washer with the same ID, or cutting a thin piece of plastic to fit over the hole? Just something to give it a little more height to catch the egg, but still smooth enough for it to roll. Just a thought

One was quite oval and I couldn't see the air cell when I set it. Guess what? I set it upside down. But its developing, so I flipped it. Not sure what will happen with it, but looks like I better get to fixing my old bator as a hatcher real quick!

Talk about impeccable timing.
Thank you so much for the welcome!!
Oops about the number of chickens I'm displaying. Someone was teasing me about my chicken math.
(You know who you are!!)
Guess I should correct that.
I only have 78 chickens. But everything else is correct on my signature.
Well, if "far out there is in" then I'm DEFINITELY in the right place!! Because whether I'm near or far or here or there...I be "wickedly" crazy ALL the time.
Um...maybe I shouldn't spill the beans at 1am. TOO much crazy may spill out.
Ok, you get a for the purple font. I've seen some cutesy fonts on another thread, and it gives me goosebumps...
As far as CRAZY, you have to come up with some darker gifs
