    i candled my eggs lastnight, only on day 7 and i couldnt see anything going on in there. im going to wait until day 10, i only did it because i was candling chicken eggs so i decided to take a peek. in one of my turkey eggs the air sac was at the pointy end of the egg... should i toss it? what would cause that to happen?

    Has it been rotated? If it stays in the same place for too long thats what happens.. Good luck, Hannah

    The air sac should be at the top(larger rounded end)... I might try it and see, you never know....keep us posted.
