    I got some shipped eggs today, normally i dont candle them, but just for the heck of it i did today. Is the air cell suposed to move around within the egg?

    Nope... it should stay at the big end. I do hear it happens after shipping though and usually isn't a good sign. But there is still a a chance, so let them rest for awhile and hope they hatch.
