Air sac?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
This is day 8. I do not see air sacs. This is a second try. I do not have a hygrometer but I do have a thermometer and temp has been stable. I have a cup of water in styrofoam incubator, with fan and egg turner.

It looks like you're shining the light through the bottom, narrow part of the egg. The air cells are in the top, blunt part, so you need to shine the light there to see them.

They are there! Thanks for helping me with that. They are a tad smaller than I would expect from looking at pictures so I added a bit of water to increase the humidity.

You're welcome! If they're smaller than you want them to be you actually need to decrease the humidity so the egg loses more moisture.
