    Hello, I've been incubating eggs for about 9 days now. One of my eggs, upon candling, has TWO air cells!!! TWO!!! One on each side. They are shipped eggs, so that's probably why. Will this affect how they hatch?? Will decreasing the humidity make it larger and eventually make them just meet up and become one air cell??? [​IMG]

    HELP!!! [​IMG]

    It shouldn't effect hatch, as long as there is still an air sac on

    the big end on the egg. It may cause space problems, though. How big is

    the one on the small end? Can you post a picture of it while candling?

    Quote:Oh, no, there is no air cell at the small end. they are both on the large end, and there are 2 of them. each one is about 2 cm apart from each other. they are kind of big, which is why im afraid to make them bigger so they become one air cell
