Bad positioned chicks , help please!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So i ordered eggs from ebay, i know dumb huh! Anyway i have 2 frizzle and 2 bantam eggs that the air sac is on the pointy side and the babies are on the blunt end? Will they be ok? They're both at day 10, and I've been trying different positions trying to get them back to normal with no real luck. Actually one of the bantams appears not to even have an air sac yet??

Also the others that i got with those are duds, along with some pheasant eggs i got,( not old enough to candle yet) they all had what i guess now is detached air sacs? I let the pheasant eggs sit for 24 hours with blunt end up before putting in Bator. And i have those guys in a carton so they don't lay flat. I just rotate them while keeping blunt end up.

Anyone had this before? What should i do to help these babies?9

:welcome Are you candling down into the egg from the fatter round end?  If not, candle down into the egg that way and it should put things into better prospective for you. Candling from the bottom or top will distort what you are seeing in regards to growth and air cell placement.

I've candled these guys from ALL angles. I forgot to mention I'm incubating several batches of eggs. I have some i just put in lock down today, they all have nice air sacs. And in the proper place. But i got these from a neighbor so no shipping issues.
