    I was just wondering if anyone could answer a question for me. i am incubating eggs and today is the 8th day so i decided to see if there was any life in there. I can definitely tell that there is life, but i can only see them on one side. I have been turning the eggs every eight hours. I was just wondering if this is common or if i didn't turn them enough. They are brown eggs so i am having a hard time seeing anything. Thanks for any information!

    It sounds like the eggs are not being turned enough. Try and turn them more often. Hope this helps.
