    I'm not very experienced at all...so don't go by what I say. But it seems that by day 17/18 almost my whole egg is full except air sac. It seems like theres an awful lot of room...but really I'm not knowledgeable at all. but they do look healthy and the air sacs seem right. I also usually do darker eggs so that might be why.

    Quote:Yep, I was thinking a few might be slow developing. Might be if my temp was a degree or two low for a still air. I'm hoping by tomorrow night they will all look fairly similar in size...

    I would personnaly put the humidity up a little.... They look a day or two slow.... Don't be worried If they hatch a day late [​IMG]

    I'm raising the humidity a bit. I agree a few of the ones in the pics look a little behind. Most of the rest look further along, do you think
    It will hurt the slower ones to be in lockdown on day 18 (tomorrow night)?​

    if the air sack is small its because the humidity was to high and some look a little small but since you are going into lockdown on the 18th day raise the humidty. i will raise mine to 65-70%...i am new to incubating so idk if im right or not [​IMG]
