Hi,

I just saw your pics and yup, your eggs are way too wet. It appears that you do have some holes for air exchange, so that aspect of the pressure problem shouldn't be an issue for you. You might consider switching to perlite as an incubation medium as well. It seems to be much more forgiving than other media. Perlite keeps the egg box humid, but it is not as absorbant as vermiculite or moss, so the wetness is pulled, via gravity, to the bottom of the box and the eggs are surrounded by very humid air, but remain relatively dry.

Will
