    Ok I set these eggs on the 20th so are my dates as follows?
    Day1-21st
    Day 7 - 27th
    Day 14-6th
    Day18-10th
    Day21-13th

    is that correct?

    Second question is are these air cells correct for day 9?

    I've weighed the eggs and they've lost some weight dropping from 2.4 oz. to 2.2 oz. Some have lost slightly less than this but this is the average.

    Hi!
    Yes you have counted your days correctly. Air sacs look ok, I use this as a guide. Not all eggs are the same so some may look a little bigger or a little smaller than others. Each egg is individual.

    Good luck with your eggs.
