Sorry misunderstood.

Even with what your humidity was. This early your eggs are fine.

Give them some time.

At day 3 the air cell is often hard to see. These are white Spitzhauben eggs and since I only have one hen I collected eggs for 10 days so some of  my air cells were already a little bigger to begin with. Even with small air cells at day 7 or 14 can be evened out at before lockdown at day 18. Plus if your light isn't bright enough and you have dark eggs, it'll be harder to see.

What Amy was showing you was the air cell at the very top of the egg.

Give a few days and candle from the fat end.

Your temp swings that early in incubation process you have no worries your eggs are good.

Actually that pic is day 4.

Yup, you have plenty of time to see air cell growth. Day 3 is too early to worry. ;)

 

This is actually the hatch I am on now. I am taking progressive pics. I just hit day 8 a half hour ago. These are my first 5 days progression: (but again, very white and easy to see into eggs, not all eggs are equal and you can't always see as much as quick.

Thanks guys! I really appreciate it. Everything is stable now and has been for about 12hrs. 99 degrees and 25-30% humidity. I did look earlier i have a pretty bright light and could see the yolks moving just no developement or air cell. But i have a better idea what to look for now. Thank you so much. I really appreciate it!
