    [​IMG] I'm going to assume that you have the turner working (if not start hand turning) Candle your eggs in a couple of days. I think that they will be fine.

    Hi :welcome
    Glad you could join the flock! I too think your eggs should be fine. Don't feel bad about not noticing, these things happen :hugs I'm sure in the future you will always check, this type of thing is how we all learn. I know I have learnt this way.

    Enjoy BYC :frow
