    Hurrah - evidence of embryonic and vessel development. Keep an eye on the air cell during incubation as the shell appears a little porous.

    Enjoy your sucess so far [​IMG]

    Thanks all, so excited, but I am worried about the eggs being so porous, anything I can do to help them???? My humidity is sitting about 57-60% with no water in trough and we live in the mountains of WV, so it is dry.....any help about the porous egg and air cell would be GREATLY appreciated!

    Stop worrying, the air cell looks to be ok at this stage [​IMG] Just leave your settings as they are for now. If the air cell does become to large during incubation then you adjust the humidity.

    i am loving your picture! what kind of camera are you using??

    so that's what porous looks like...what's wrong with an egg being porous?? does it affect hatchability? i have one egg that looked like that - just the porous part
