    Mine used to roll around now mine are in a deviled egg plate, I am a little scared of the carton hatching right now so i decided to do egg serving dish hatching! They only roll as far as i roll them, and set perfectly in the little holes on their sides. Of course I DO NOT use it for food anymore. Some people use pieces of toilet paper tube.As for candling the spotted eggs, i would try using a very bright flashlight and in a VERY dark room. I do my candling in a extra bathroom with no windows about 12 at night.
