New way to check eggs?

    I was dunking the eggs this evening, and put all of the oldest into the pail of water. They have all been floating for about a week now. As I was re-arranging a few things, the eggs had time to get still in the warm water. As I went to put them all back in, I noticed some movement from several of them, I pulled out the first ones that wiggled a bit, and waited for the rest to wiggle too. The other ones did too.

    I thought it was intriguing, and so much like a duck.

    It might be worth checking the size of the air cells and make sure they are developing to the right size for the stage of incubation you are at- Dunking every day may change the amount of humidity you need to provide in the incubator.
