    I am stressing about air cells - I have such a variation - some I am worried are going to lose too much moisture, but the others don't seem to have lost enough. Is it because of the different egg shapes? [​IMG] The longer, pointier shaped eggs seem to have smaller aircells, where the rounder ones have larger aircells. Should I delay lockdown? [​IMG] Today is day 18 - the first pencil line is day 14, the second pencil line is today [​IMG] These are very precious eggs [​IMG]

    Those all look normal to me. Worry less... It'll pay off in the end.[​IMG]

    between days 18 and 20 the cells will grow very fast, so it may look too small now but it's perfect
