Does it matter if the eye is on the top or bottom when candling?

    Day 8 today and I candled all my eggs. Some of them have a wiggley eye (good) and some of them the eye spot is drawn by gravity to the bottom of the egg and it is not moving. I can only see it if I hold the egg and the flashlight upside down over my head and look up.

    Is the not moving eye spot drawn by gravity a sign of a bad egg?

    Thank for the help.
