Best to keep them just as they were when laid...

In Reply to: Need some egg advice. Quick! posted by falias on May 18, 2003 at 18:59:54:

I have only this first clutch worth of experience but what I was told is that the embryo develops at the bottom of the egg (determined by how the egg sits after laying) and the air pocket is at the top of the egg (again this settles in after the egg sits still upon laying). I was told the best advise is to lay the egg in the vermiculite in the same position you found it. Jackie Vandiver told me the only exception is if an egg is standing on end (like up against the glass) and if you are prompt after it is layed, you might gently set it down on its side when placing it in the vermiculite. I understand the reason for not moving it is that within minutes after laying the egg "insides" take their position and adhere to parts of the egg and to jostle that around would be deadly.

Again, I am yet a novice but I must be doing okay because my first egg hatched this afternoon :)
