    i have a lone egg in my incubator, the others died early :hit

    but today is day 20 and i just cannot resist to candle them. (i know i should not, but only did it once haha :bow)

    now here's the thing. the chick is moving! but the aircell is almost half of the egg and crescent shaped. should i worry? i saw some pics of day 20 eggs that has way smaller air cell than mine. will my chick be alright? :/

    i just cannot stop thinking about it. and btw, this is my first hatch! (hopefully) :D

    thnks guys! :)

    Don't worry about that air cell. Try to raise/keep the humidity at about 60% until it hatches, it will help the chick have an easier time.

    Good luck!
