Embryo sticking to the side of the egg?

    I candled my eggs tonight and I could see really good cause they are white eggs (never hatched white eggs). Anyway, so when I rotated them, some of the little embryos didn't float around they just stayed kinda stuck to the side. I've been turning them and some look ok and move, but I just have never been able to see so clearly and was wondering if this was normal or if they are sticking. If they are sticking to the side will they be able to hatch ok or will they be duds? Any wisdom or advice would be appreciated. Thanks! [​IMG]

    it's normal [​IMG] i turn mine 3 times a day and they look like that. they will settle to the other side once you give it a couple of house after turning.

    Great--thanks so much!!! I've never seen inside the eggs so clearly--they probably always look like that I just have never seen it. [​IMG]
