    Hi y'all,
    I have some shipped eggs that have damaged air cells.
    Will they still hatch? It's day 19 and I have 1 chick and 1 pip and 78 more to go. the damaged cell ones had live chicks but a few days ago they were so full I couldn't candle them so I was just wondering if they could still hatch even if they ran out of room?
    Thanks, Kelly

  2. Yes they can. If they've lived to hatch time chances should be comparable to others. Watch your humidity....
