    I am on Day 11 of a pekin egg and the embryo appears to be thriving but I am concerned that the yolk stays to one side of the egg even when I turn it....the embryo moves but the yolk does not. Will the baby survive?

    Try not to panic :hugs Your egg sounds normal. The yolk shouldn't move much anyway only slight movement should be seen. I would be more concerned if the yolk was following you round the egg as you turned it. I wouldn't worry as long as you have seen the embryo move, it should be fine. Just make sure the egg is turned regular.
    Best of luck too you.
