Hi All

I recently saw that neodymium magnets stick to unhatched/spent brine cysts..

So I bought one and its worthless.

Its round, coin-shaped, very very magnetic, and *absolutely* worthless. As in, not a single egg is attracted to it. Nothing.

Thanks Amazon!

Anyone know whats up here?

I remember hearing about this years ago, like 2010-2012. My understanding was that the company selling these had applied something to treat the eggs so that the shells became drawn to a magnet, not that the shells were naturally magnetic, but it's been a long time since I'd heard of it.
