    These are about my sebastopol eggs (goose eggs)

    well while I was cooling the eggs today, I quickly candled....I still can't see anything in that third egg. HOwever, something weird about the other two....one seems much more advanced than the other...more veins and a bigger embryo...the other is still growing but not as much as the first.....is this normal?

    Another thing that worries me is that the air pocket seems to be a big bigger than it should.... I'll try My humidity stays betwee 50-60 nowadays..sometimes drops to 45 but most of hte time its fifty-something....so maybe its okay just seems too big to me.....
    My pics are of just one egg..the other is about the same

    For some reason maybe it started sooner (?) That's a hard call because you don't want it to dry out to fast. Have you got the eggs in a still air or forced air incubator?

    They are in a forced air.... this egg is the bigger embryo..the other is still smaller..like maybe half the size or maybe a bit bigger than 1/2
