We are on Day 18... we're nearing the end here guys! It's hard to believe that our eggs are set to hatch in just a few short days. You can see in today's image the size increase of the air pocket in the egg compared to days 7 and 14. The chick's beak will soon break through the membrane to access this pocket.
Tomorrow begins "lock down" for the incubator to prepare for hatching.
On Day 18:
- Beak breaks through the inner shell membrane
- Lungs are beginning to function
