    This is Day 13. They will be going into lock down on Wednesday, being a newbie though I want to make sure my air cells look appropriate for the time frame as my last disastrous batch the air cells were way too large. This photo is enhanced to show the cell and veining.. I'm going to try to set up a web cam come hatch time. These are black maran and marans x's.

    Looks fine to me, but they still have a long way to go, I wouldn't start worrying until you get closer to lockdown. I also wouldn't be turning the egg upside-down like that, I lose too many from shipping damage so I try to keep them upright the entire time, even when candled...

    Here's the chart I use to compare to my own eggs. And by the way, that's an awesome picture!
