Weird air cell?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Yesterday was day 5 in incubating white Leghorn eggs. I decided to candle them (mostly because I couldn't wait to see how many were fertilized! Lol).
But one of the eggs is quite different than the others. The blood vessels are only covering maybe 3/4th's of the egg inside and there's a dark spot that almost looks like a embryo but it seems pretty developed for only 5 days, or maybe it's just where it's pressed against the inside of the shell. The air cell is also off to the side and not perfectly round. Any idea what could be going on?

Just check it again in in a few days, Having candles 1000's and 1000's I know of nothing you can do to change what you are seeing. How did the rest look----blood vessels in them look good?

The rest look pretty normal. Just this one is a little odd. Have you seen anything like this before?

Well being honest, In the beginning I candled some about day 6 or 7 but if they did not look right I just put them back in and waited a few days and candled again So I just got in the habit of candling on day 12 and alot of times with the cabinet I only candle on day 18. I never monitor air cells so I have no experience in air cells. So there might have been some, might not have been in the 1000's and 1000's I have hatched. I do know what air cells should look like on the day I candle(day 12 )--but what they looked like from day 1 to day 11---I have no idea.
