@Sally Sunshine OK, Day 14 candling and weighing done. I did my little graphs, and while the AVERAGE weight loss is on track for 11%, I noticed some differences that made me graph each egg (there were only 15!). And PER WEIGHTS, some are on track to lose less than 10%, others 15%+. However, by candling, all the air cells look good to me compared to other images and the little air cell size sketch in Hatching 101. As the scale that I used for the first two weights was imprecise (and in fact died after day 7), I'm going to trust the air cells - but I'll post a few photos so someone can speak up if they look too big to anyone (wo. Humidity is set at 35%, and ambient is running around 35-45% this week. All embryos appear healthy and kicking (very cute to see them kick their little feet!)
Shipped NNs with the messed up air cells not due to be candled until Friday - I wonder if any of them will show development.
OK, off to try to catch up before I pass out...

If they are different breeds, and aircells look good, i wouldnt worry about weightloss.
