    Sorry, been MIA the last week, I've been sitting on my hands and leaving them be, lol. Today is day 7, and 15 out of 18 are developing! Threw out a BLRW, Isbar and BCM. Pretty good for shipped eggs right? This is my first time shipping.

    Won't know for about two or three more days. Cold process takes a while to set up enough for unmolding. The top design changed a bit since I moved it around and stuff. We'll see.

    All right, stupid question... I am getting 12 eggs tomorrow, after I let the air cells set, in what direction do I fill the automatic egg turner. I know the eggs go small end down, but my turner holds more eggs then I am getting and not sure if I should from middle out, or one side to another or around the outside. Please help clearify.

    I start from the middle and work my way out, I just try to keep the eggs evened out. Like 3 or 4 on each row.. Depends on however many eggs I get. I think it's just person preference though.

    Two definite rolling air cells. I couldn't see any other air cells. So, what should I do? [​IMG]
