    I have noticed that as the days go on the air cell on most of my eggs is getting quite large...I had circled it in the begining so that I could tell top from bottom...and now the pencil mark is way off ...

    So what is the correlation between air cell growth and incubation days?..

    Is it a good indication that all is going well?

    Would an air cell continue to grow if the chick is dead?..

    Can you predict when you might get a pip based on the size of the air cell?...
