    All you'll be able to see is a big dark blob...you probably can't see it moving at this point, so just LEAVE IT ALONE!! Taking it out of the bator at this point will only hurt it so give it another day or 2.

    Give him some time...21 days is only a guideline. Each incubator can make eggs develop at different speeds slightly...keep the humidity up and leave him alone for now. [​IMG]
