    Does the air cell continue to get bigger when the egg is a quitter? I have Blue Splash Marans eggs that don't appear viable to me (we're 5 days from hatch day!) and yet the air cell continues to increase.

    Thanks in advance for your reply.

    Mine do, however, you should be able to candle and know for sure if it is developing or not at this late stage.

    I do. I'm just in willful denial. [​IMG]
