    Float. Heck - You should be able to put your nose to it and smell it. You will never forget that smell.

    You're only supposed to try to hatch freshly-laid eggs. (or ones that have been carefully kept in the fridge)

    I think if you just tried it and it wasnt in the water too long it might be okay?[​IMG]
