    Has anyone ever had any eggs that have abnormally shaped air cells? I just candled a few of my eggs and noticed that some had an misshaped air cell. Just wondering if anyone else has seen this.

    Are they shipped?

    How were the stored?

    As long as the air sac is still at the fat end of the egg,

    the chick should have no problem with hatching [​IMG]

    Shipped eggs can get pretty shook up causing deformed, or detached air sacs.
