    I can’t right now, but I when I did about 30 minutes ago He was steadily breathing in the air sac so I know that he has and I just don’t understand what’s taking so long. The air sac has expanded a bit and the lower bottom portion I’ve seen him fluttering around in but I know it’s been at least 36 hours

    Do you think since I’m not moving him, that it could be underneath where I can’t see it?

    I'm just wondering if what you're seeing is just draw-down and he hasn't actually internally pipped yet. If he really has been internally pipped for that long, then I would recommend a safety hole.

    Oh no, okay.... so now I’m freaking out because I’ve increased the humidity and everything for lock down. I’m about 20 minutes away from getting home which make it worse. Oh me!!!!! So if he hasn’t pipped then is the increases humidity going to harm him??

    No, you increase the humidity in lockdown before they internally pip.

It’s in or near the air sac, is it normal? I took several pics but it’s kinda of hard to see with the flashlight, but hopefully you’ll be able to get an idea from them.

Idk but I need to know if I should make a safety hole or something.
    Ok I tried to make a video, but 12s worth is to large of a file, so idk how to upload it.
