Default Moved eggs are hatching

The eggs that had been incubated for 10 days and then transported by car 120 mile for incubation to be completed at our present address are hatching. This proves that moving eggs which are being incubated appears to cause no harm to the developing embryo's.

I hope that this may be useful for anyone else faced with having to transport incubating eggs.

Regards

Steve
