    The two experiments listed below (at least I think they are two different ones) are what I will be basing my experiment upon.

    http://epsaegypt.com/pdf/2009_december/10-1160.pdf

    I will be performing my experiment using the product below:

    This will be conducted in conjunction with the https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/1074649/the-7th-annual-byc-easter-hatch-a-long so this original post will more than likely be updated.

    The parameters for my experiment are professionally written here:

    I welcome peoples input on my subject of choice. I currently do not know how many eggs I will be experimenting with as I am not made of money.

    I'm sure anybody who's been here any length of time already has a pretty fair idea of what you're made of [​IMG] Good luck with your study.

    It will be interesting to see what you get from the egg spray.

    I do mine the way the study describes by dipping mine in an ascorbic acid solution.
    I do the 5 grams ascorbic acid per liter for 2 minutes.
    What they don't say in the PDF is the temperature of the solution.
    I don't have good results to report yet due to incubator problems.

    I'm hoping that I don't screw something up so I do have good results to report.........but I can't make any promises.

    Would you mind sharing your dip recipe or is it commercially available?
