    Has anyone ever succesfully hatched a chick from an egg that the air cell was disloged? I have some eggs that the air cell is floating around and there is bubbles in the egg. Im not sure I even see the yolk. Weird! It looks like there is no yolk at all. [​IMG] I have them in the bator anyhow, but its on day 4 and I dont see anything. I really want them to be good!

    Are they white eggs? I would wait until day 7 to see if there's any veining/little moving blob... good luck!

    Someone said if the aircell is loose to let them sit upright a while in a carton before starting to incubate and they might be ok [​IMG] hope they are...

    I candled all the eggs again tonight and nothing so I cracked them open... all the yolks were busted like scrambled eggs. I guess thats why I wasnt sure if I seen a yolk at first. They were shipped eggs though. The PO can be so rough sometimes.
