    Can you see the beak? if so let it go... do not open the bator and loose humidity or it may get shrink wrapped with the membrane and die.

    I was about to post the EXACT same problem. The chick is right on time at day 19 but it doesn't look like it has filled out the egg. just as described by the original posting, it looks like there's more albumin in there. here's a pic of the egg.

    Quote:then it can breath,.. leave it alone and lt will most likely "zip" soon but it needs humidity so it will not dry out the membrane.

    No, no, not the air sac. the egg white. I have duck eggs that still have another week to go and still look further along than the chick.

    Ahhh,.. a lot of growth happens in the last week.. also some evaporation happens...
    Is this your first time candling eggs?
    If they have a week left ( in my opinion ) they egg pic you posted looks about right.
