Down to 10

I'm not surprised. I had two eggs that I wasn't at all confident about from the very beginning. They both had totally detached air cells, and the one was really porous.  I kept them upright.

I figure I'm about 48 hours in, so I thought I'd check on them to see if the air cell had reattached. Not only had they not reattached, but they were both weeping. This is very bad news for incubating eggs. So, I've taken them out of the incubator and am tossing them.  I thought I'd show you what they looked like when being candled.
