Hi,
I have my egg basket on my kitchen table. it is near a window that faces west an in the afternoon i let a bit of sun in. When i walked ino the kitchen the other day, this egg was glowing. You can clearly see that there is nothing happening in this egg. I am thinkin next sunny day in Melbourne i will try it with a egg from the bator to see how much you can see.

I hope you weren't planning to incubate that egg. Might have got a bit hot don't you think?

Cheers

You can actually see quiet alot works well with duck eggs probably because of their size :)

Wasn't hot at all. Was just the correct angle of light. No, not planning on incubating but thought it was weird having a glowing egg!

Yes, I've never seen an egg do that before!
