    There are bubbles in all 7 of the duck eggs I ordered. I know it is difficult on eggs, but there was no indication on the box that it was fragile. That makes me pretty mad! [​IMG] Is there anyway I can leave them set over night and they will be ok? [​IMG]

    Should I send this message the the person and hope they will send me more eggs?

    I candled all 7 eggs and they all had a bubble in the air sac, also fragile wasn't written on the box. The wrapping was great though. No broken eggs.

    There's a bubble in your bubble? How can you tell? I'm really not sure at all what you mean by this. Are you certain it's not the air cell itself?

    Kindly let them know that the air cells were ruptured and see what they say. Also, leave the eggs set overnight, large end up, to let them settle. And set them anyway, in an egg carton, so the air cell is in the right place. I've had chicks hatch from eggs with broken air cells before. Shipped eggs can be tough to hatch - lots happens in the delivery time. Alot of people don't write fragile on their boxes, because they believe that it will cause them to incur more damage than if it didn't say anything. I don't agree with that myself, but lots of folks think that way. IF the seller offers to replace the eggs, ask them to write fragile on the box, and see if it makes a difference, if it does let them know, maybe they will change their policy. [​IMG] Good luck to you!! [​IMG]

    Its like the air sac was ruptured or something. Cloverleaf Farm- I will try setting them like that overnight! I will try putting them under my broody tomorrow and see if I get any growth in a few days! Thank you for your advice, it's greatly appreciated!

    Quote:Give them a good week...unless you've incubated a bazillion times and REALLY know what you're doing when candling...I've hatched a couple hundred chicks, and I still second guess myself until about day 7-10...so now I don't even bother until then. [​IMG]

    I just recently hatched 4 out of 20 silkie eggs that had the same problem. Not a good hatch rate but considering they were all "scrambled" from shipping I was happy.

    I sure hope at least 1 or 2 hatch! I was sooo excited til I candled and found that. I very well may cry if they don't start developing.
