    I've read that there is a relation with the air cell and the humidity level, but I've seen both ways and now I'm confused. Here are my questions:

    Is it supposed to get bigger?
    If the air cell is larger than it's supposed to be, does that mean not enough humidity? Or vice versa?
    The large end has an aircell, but is there supposed to be extra space under the yolk too? (I can post a pic of what I mean)
    Until I can find an appropriate sized tray, the humidity level is 35-37. Is that too low?

    That's all I can think of for now. Thanks in advance ; )
