    Ok, we're on day 7 + 6 hours...Out of 17 Buff Orpington eggs (thanks Jody!) I have 10 that look GREAT! 3 I couldn't tell, and 4 that I think are duds...GREAT odds, especially for my first time!!

    That's GREAT! I have some from Jody that I set on Friday early, early morning that I can't wait to see what's happening!

    I do have a question though...The ones I'm not sure on, will the dark part move when you rotate the egg or does it stay in one place?

    It will rotate and after enough time, float to the top of the egg.

    If it moves as fast as you rotate the egg?
