    I'm incubating Georgia Giant Bobwhites...there seems to be vast inconsistency among my 200 eggs. I culled 28 yesterday and put them on a separate rack to check later, but currently they appear infertile. The others have veins showing...some much more than others. Is inconsistency or different development common? I'm a week in.

    Inconsistencies even more drastic today. Some are showing movement inside and others are showing very light veining.

    It may be that some eggs are in cold air pockets in the bator'.

    I'll start rearranging them more frequently.
