    I set 6 eggs March 11th. Weights then were:
    1. 46 grams
    2. 51 grams
    3. 42 grams
    4. 40 grams
    6. 37 grams
    7. 40 grams

    (5&8 were omitted due to flaws in the eggs!)

    Day 7 the weights were:
    1. 44 grams
    2. 49 grams
    3. 40 grams
    4. 38 grams (this egg placed upside down on accident- flipped over to correct side)
    6. 35 grams
    7. 38 grams

    Air cells marked and movement in all eggs. Humidity 34%

    Today (day 14) weights are:
    1. 42 grams
    2. 47 grams
    3. 38 grams
    4. 35 grams
    6. 33 grams
    7. 36 grams

    Still noting movement in all eggs and air cells marked. Humidity is 27% (I use dry method). If I calculated correctly they are all losing the right amount of weight at the right time. #4 lost 1 gram more than what I had expected however! Lockdown in 4 days!
