    Quote:20 eggs seems like alot for a runner, she will sit most of the time and get off to takes potty breaks swim eat and basically run around like a nut. Then back on the eggs. Good luck and let us know how it goes. [oh and time wise maybe 30 min] they like to swim because thats how they create the humidity they need to cook them eggs.
