    Is this even possible?
    I've been able to see development normally from day 4 with all my other batches and dud eggs have candled clear, but today is day 7 with these eggs and all I can see is the egg yolk and air sac. Is there any chance at all that these will develop, as the air sacs are developing? [​IMG]
    I'm so peeved that these don't appear to be developing as these are my blue d'anvers. [​IMG]

    The air sacs will naturally grow larger with the conditions in the incubator. This has nothing to do with whether there is a developing embryo or not. I would wait until day 10 and candle again and take it from there.
