Re: Artificial Hatching
Quite possibly but why would the worms travel about 1 foot to the egg? They
must be eating something off the egg. I watched the last egg as the worms
were clouded around it. The egg was getting tumbled around by the worms. It
was actually rotating while they nibbled at it. Atleast this is my theory of
what exactly happens. I may be wrong but this method has proven to be
successful for me.
