Thanks to all that have answered on BYC!100% .AUgh I have another question [​IMG] .My eggs are brown rir ,and very hard to candle,but at this time i can only see about half the egg is dark and shadowed .Is this normal ,can any tell me if the eggs are developing normal or developing late.I have looked at the sticky,but my eggs look about day 10 on there--no movement that I can see.. HeLP...thanks again Everyone...[​IMG][​IMG]

    I could not tell you how to do a float test as I have never done it myself but I know the subject has been discussed several times in just the last 2 weeks... Put "float test" in the BYC search and you will get loads of info...
