Hatching a long air pocket?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Good Morning, I have one egg that has an air pocket that extends from the top down one side of the egg about half way. It looks like there's good development, but is there something special I should do with this one when I take them off the turner tomorrow? I thought I saw a pic of a candled egg and troubleshooting somewhere here but now I can't find it! Lockdown tomorrow!

Thanks!

Nothing special, but don't be surprised if that one pips early because it sounds like the air cell might already be drawn down.

Good luck!
