    Don't feel bad! I received 11 shipped eggs on Friday, the packing was excellent but every single one had a totally detached air cell. I was so bummed. 3 had development (which is more then I've ever got from detached air cells before) and 1 quit. So I have 2 eggs developing in the first week, air cells have not reattached. The chances of getting one to make it to hatch is slim to none. So, I truly know how you feel. But I've also had great hatches with shipped from 60-90% hatch rate. That's why I keep trying because it's a risk but sometimes it's worth it. I have another batch coming in 2 weeks. You can't give up. Also, just wanted to tell you that red rings in shipped are not from bacteria (most of the time) they are from the embryo starting but not being able to attach properly.

    :celebrate I'm so happy they came and were in one piece!! I'm so excited to follow your hatch!

    Hows it going now? I didn't see where anyone answered.
    You mean the bottom toward the floor, or bottom as in pointy end.

    If toward the floor, you can turn it, but if its clear of the floor, you don't really need to. Hopefully it progressed?

    HERE HERE it's a very fascinating thing why not enjoy what Mother Nature does. I think that's why a lot of us has the HD disease.

    The same? Well not necessary some maybe just slower then the others. But in theory they all have to accomplish the same thing.

    You can but its not necessary. He'll still get out either way.
