    Well... It's day 24. I pulled one of the two viable eggs (out of 10) out and thought I saw it move, but it looks about 1/4 empty. What does that mean?

    Well, during hatch time, they are supposed to look partly empty because of the humidity increase. The high humidity makes the air cell bigger.
    Since it's day 24....i dont think there is much hope of a hatch [​IMG], but you should open up the eggs to find out how they died. The two viable ones could still be alive...you never know [​IMG]
