sounds a little strange to me. http://www.wikihow.com/Tell-if-a-Bird-Egg-Is-Infertile
I'm with you on that one.
The writer doesn't state if the "fertile" egg has or has not been incubated. One would think that she means that the egg HAS been incubated, if she's talking about "the embryo developing." In that case, a good strong flash light should show vascularization or pick up changes in an egg that is easy to candle as early as day 3 or 4. Definitely by day 7. Possibly, the float test would pick up movement of the embryo by day 7 (in a very dark egg that couldn't be easily candled), but that's not what she was looking for here. Floating vs sinking eggs are all about the size of the air cell, not about the fertility. My personal opinion: Poorly stated, and poppy cock.
I totally agree "poppy cock"
My granny always said this about eggs in testing for freshness.....
"If it sinks to the bottom you got em. If it floats to the top you better stop."
Meaning if it floats it is OLD and not good to eat.
Poppy Cock... I don't think I've heard those words since my dear grandma passed away many years ago....lol I also took it as though it was speaking from a having been incubated stand point.
Kinda dates me, doesn't it! I'm at least old enough to be your Mama!
I'm feeling pretty old these days...lol I'm missing my youth!! lol
