    I am worried I saw that you candle w/lite at the large end and to me that was holding the egg upside down now I saw where you hold the lite on top of the egg,soo could I have killed my eggs by holding the lite with the egg upside down?

    Rough handling might harm them, gentle turning will not, just minimise it [​IMG]

    Oh dear, I held mine sideways when I candled and I rolled them slowly around to see it from all sides. Is that bad??!

    I didn't know there was a certain position they had to be in [​IMG]
