    No worries, Lydia. I seem to be developing a lot of experience with assisted hatching in a short amount of time! I've gotten a LOT of help on this forum and am happy to do the same for others now.

    It looks to be on the fat end... towards the top... so most likely in air cell. This is good. It's been 48 hours since you saw the first crack in the shell? What type of bator? Fan or no fan? Where is your humidity and temp at now?
