    Went into lockdown last night, today one of the air sacs is dark, almost looks black on the inside. Makes me nervous because just a couple days ago I had a whole egg turn dark like that and start leaking. I took it out before it exploded. This one is just the air sac, when I shine a light in the bator I can see it's clearly darker than the rest of the egg. What does this mean?

    Do you have pictures? And I don't think you should be candling right now.

    I haven't candled, just shining a light into the incubator I can see the air sac is really dark. No pictures because I don't want to open it. I can try to get one through the lid though.

    Thank you! This is the best picture I could get through the lid, you can kind of see how the blunt end is darker [​IMG]

    I really don't know, I'm doing my first hatch. But the people on the thread I linked to seem to.
