My only full size layer right now lays eggs and when I candle them (flashlight) I saw air bubble one time. Another an air pocket. I didn't know what it was at first so they went to the dogs and when I cracked them open there was nothing wrong with them. Just had air pockets.

Is this just one of those things? None of my bantie eggs have this issue.

Ok, I looked it up earlier because I know about it but not really what it is either lol, but wasn't sure if you knew what an air cell was or not, and that it might have been something else. "An air space forms when the contents of the egg cool and contract after the egg is laid." And as it gets older, air moves in through the pores and also fills the air cell.
