    And one thing, im on day 17 now, I took this on like day 14-15. So on day 17, it has more darkness but light can still go through it. Give it more days?

    You can check it in a few days to look for progress but it doesn't look right for day 14-15. By 14-15 my live ones (despite not hatching successfully) took up the whole egg except the air cell. That one is really small, like day 7 or something? But it could just be a late one.

    I hope its only a late one. Maybe it will hatch on day 20? Its day 17, and its grown a lot. There is this one egg, I think its bad... Its all dark, but no air sac? But I have other eggs that are full with an airsac Im hoping for them to hatch soon

    It looks like this one will be a late one it will probably on day 20. In the photos it looks like the chick is in there. I hope that it hatches!!
