Air cell pics are given below:





I really can't see the whole egg... Any pics of just the traced lines instead of the bright light? I would have put temp up to 100-100.5, but too late now. I tagged you on a thread that should be able to help.

Sorry..The traced lines pics wouldn't come into focus with the camera (Nor would it come into focus in the incubator so they had to quickly be removed..) so I just traced the lines again on the PC.

 

Air Cells are traced in black-

 

 

I forgot to mention that them temp is measured in Celsius,  Should The humidity  be raised? And really the chick that is featured in the pics above seemed to be much bigger than a '16' days old chick.

 

 

Thankyou Banti  :hugs

Honestly, I am rather disappointed! Is there any chance the two remaining eggs will make it to lockdown?

Humidity should have been lower, IMHO. Air cells seem way too small to me, but it is too late now...... I run 28% humidity, but everybody has a different 'magic number'.
And don't worry, I knew what you meant! wink.png

Yes, the first egg is the one I was worried about. It might drown or hatch weak..... You never know.

Another one down :hit

 

Oh, I just don't know what is happening! They just seem to be dying day after day. Well I think I should be happy that one made it to Lockdown?

 

But come to think of it maybe it was for the best, the little guy that died had the extremely small air cell so I am left with the egg that remains with the correct air cell.

 

There he is..and he actually had his guts hanging out. :idunno
