just to make everyone want to win the ten eggs a little bit more!!! i broke 5 eggs open to see devolpment stage, 2 out of the 5 were just at the stage where the membrane around a red yolk is forming the shape of the nymph i.e could see the abdomen segments forming , so less than 6 months for some to hatch :)

So does that mean we have a five egg lee-way on our guesses then as they were removed after-the-fact???? :whistle:
