One last thing: HURRY!

Don't move the eggs after they've been sitting a couple of days, unless
you WANT a bunch of deformed freaks. When the main blastomere starts
differentiating, it does so from the top. If the eggs get moved, the
"top" gets changed, and the process starts all over from the new top
without being interrupted at the old growth area. This is how you get
two-headed lizards and such, assuming they even survive, which they
often don't.
