    I was candling the eggs in my genesis now on day 6 and all are doing great, and I came across a sultan egg that was developing, but the embryo was at the top of the egg(where the air cell is suppose to be) and the air cell was on the side of the egg. Will this chick develope and hatch normally? What do I do [​IMG]

    There is nothing you can do, just keep it in the right position and hope it grows and hatches....

    I have had eggs that were shipped do that and they can hatch successfully.
