I'm going to erase most of my multiquote because it's already been answered! I'll just say I agree with all the different advice given in the last 24 hours!

I bought the cheap corrugated plastic roofing panels. I forget the name but there's a few threads on them. They are already starting to warp. I was thinking of replacing them in spring but with better quality. Do you prefer tin to the good quality stuff I'm talking about??

also my air cells look a little bit big. This means humidity is to high?
It looks like it's connected at the top. The pics of double yolkers I've seen, have more of a point at the middle and you can clearly see two different embryos developing on each side. Do any others look like that? Keep an eye on it. Does it look like two separate embryos on each side?

It could be that the air cells on the "clears" we're detached? When I have totally detached air cells, they won't even start to develop. They will just look clear.

He says he wants my green egg chicks TOO, i tol him i would Love the opp to incubate for him. He lost about 500$ in peas last yr(his Broody left the nest... )
Looks like more great fun! He lives jus up the highway from me
i have the feelin he scoffs at our website, and that he sees me as a wanna be kid, but i also feel like i impressed him with the reserch ive done, and in the long run, i feel mostly, like he does want to work with me
Are you wanting to hatch peas? My neighbor threw out about 250 fertile eggs last spring! If you want eggs, I could probably get them cheap from him. He might even just give me some and I could send them for shipping cost. I took 6 last spring. All were fertile, 2 died first week. 1 died in lockdown and 3 hatched healthy!
I had one like that, I think. And I was told here that it wasn't cracks but happened inside the hen before being laid. I'll find a pic and you tell me if it looks the same.
