    Okay so I had terrible temp variations so I did a float test.... Here are the pictures of the eggs I dissected:
    Dead Embryo(should have been 14 days progress)

    Embryo and Dud

    I will admit I was scared to do the float test.... I knew I would have lost some... Idk if others were too young to tell from the float test so I didn't pay mind to the results with them.. But 2 of my 3 due thursday are still supposedly viable! And about 8 of my 12 floated... Sooo... I think as long as I have no quitters then things should be peachy.
