Successful hatch with saddlebag air cells?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have 30 eggs due to hatch this weekend all were shipped. 10 or so have saddlebag air cells. Several dip very low into the egg. I know this happens from rough handling during shipping. I have hatched a ton of eggs in my life but these saddlebags are severe. My question is: Has anyone had success with saddlebag air cells hatching on their own?? Thanks in advance! ~Rand

Yes! I recieved a dozen eggs with a few extras all with saddled air cells, I had 7 hatch successfully, the others quit at different stages and never made lock down. When I laid them down for lock down I made sure the saddled sides were not on the bottom. I don't know if this made a difference or not though.
