    We Have 1 Rouen and 2 Mallard eggs in a Brinsea Mini Advanced. Just candled them and they look great, excellent vascularization and movement, but the air cells are still small. It is very humid here and even though I have NO water in the incubator, it is maintaining 60% RH. I am wondering if this is too high and the eggs are not losing enough humidity to get good size air cells. Since we're a week away from hatch I'm pretty worried. What can I do to get the air cells larger?

    Someone said to mist them, but wouldn't that make it more humid?

    Someone please - any suggestions would be really appreciated!

    I wouldnt worry to much about it yet. You will find come day 24 to 26 it will dip down quite quick. Ive had mine dip down quite alot in just hours come the end of incubation.
