    That is amazing and very educational! During this whole incubation I was looking for pictures like these so I would know if they were developing as they should. Now I am on day 21.

    THANK YOU for taking the time to do this!

    Thanks!

    The pictures past like day 12 are all going to be pretty boring since the chick is taking enough space it's shadow is getting dark. There won't be pics from day 18-21 since I don't want to risk the humidity levels and there won't be anything to see anyways.

    But of course, there will be chick pictures in the end!!!

    I've really been needing great pictures like that for reference. I've had some questionable eggs in the past and just couldn't find any photos to compare anywhere on the net. [​IMG] Thanks so much can't wait to see the chick pics!

    Thanks!

    This video from today (day 16) is totally cool. You can see the toes on the air cell side of the egg moving!

    I'm so excited!
