I just set some blue Breda eggs in the incubator. I've had this unit for close to 20 years and it is amazing. These were shipped eggs, so hopefully some are viable.

14 out of 15 are growing. I can't believe it after being shipped from the west coast. That said, it doesn't mean they will hatch but a good start.

Yay!!! Thats great! I checked mine this morning and it looks like 10 out of 12 are alive- one being a double yolker! I didnt realise as its not really very big compared to the other eggs! Even so its alive!

Out of the 14 fertile I have 10 in the brooder 1 still hatching and 3 that were fully developed but failed to get into the air cell and died. I tried to save them but was too late, out of those 3, 2 were positioned correctly and 1 was not.

Good luck with your hatch. I don't think moving them should be a problem. Correction, I have 10 total. I forgot I had one die in shell last week. That last egg had to be helped and has much larger feet than the others.
