    Hi everyone -

    I have 2 eggs who's air cells are on the side of their egg - embryo is developing in line with the other eggs in the incubator, we're now at day 14.

    Does anyone know if these chicks will make it if position them with the air cell up once I take them out of the turner???

    Looking for any and all suggestions
    Thanks

    I think there is a chance for the chick to make it, but the chances are diminished. Just wait it out and good luck.

    Just let it grow! I hatched out one of these and it lived - looked as good as the rest of them!

    Good Luck!
