    You're just jealous we are not paying any attention to you. We are having our own conversation without you.

    Well, 80% but who's counting. [​IMG]

    11 out of 20 is great for shipped eggs too.

    Very interesting read about turning eggs here: http://dev.biologists.org/content/5/3/293.full.pdf

    "Consideration of the arrangement of the egg contents suggests that a particularly critical time for turning the eggs might be the latter part of the first week of incubation. At this time a large area of chorion lies close to the shell membranes and the layer of albumen between the two has been greatly reduced by a loss of fluid from the albumen to the yolk. Abnormal adhesions between the chorion and shell membranes, therefore, seem a possibility at this stage unless the shell and its membranes are periodically moved relative to the egg contents, i.e. unless the eggs are turned. "

    I would still rather risk the detached cell eggs turning after two days to give the whole or attached eggs the best possible chance of hatching. I wonder why they didn't do a day 1-3 group? I have heard the embryo picks up nutrients from the egg as it sinks from one side to the other early on, but that doesn't make complete sense to me since it should be fed by the yolk.

    I think in light of all of that I would let them sit upright for 2 days and then start to turn. But that's just me.
