    I'd say a bit large for day 7. You could probably raise your humidity slightly.

    Thank you I will keep around 50-55%
     
  4. Oh crap, I think I messed up! So, when the eggs were shipped to me, they were small end pointed down and they were marked on the big end. I placed them into the bater, small/pointy end down. All of the air cells are in the pointy ends of the eggs and they seem quite large? I took pics of 4 random eggs. Please let me know what I should be doing (don't say "not hatching eggs!", although that would make me laugh and I would appreciate your sense of humor!)[​IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    If more than half of the egg is air cell then something is way wrong. Never seen one where the air cell stayed in the pointed end unless they were set pointy end up. I would make sure they are all point down and bump up ur humidity to 50% or so.
