Totally silly question, but I have to ask.

    I have a friend who I gave three eggs to to hatch with his daughter in a small incubator I lent him. He is standing in front of me swearing the eggs grew.

    I told him he was out of his mind but he claims he has witnesses. The question is, is he insane? Or does this really happen?

    I have 9 eggs from the same batch of the 3 I gave him and last I looked they did not grow.

    Did something happen to the original eggs and he is covering up for it??? You know, like when parents replace Sparky the goldfish while little Susie is at school? [​IMG]

    he is messing with your head. Answer is no they don't "grow" larger.

    Too funny. I like the concept that someone swapped the eggs. Now that's entertaining!
