    I had eggs go into lockdown today that I was candling, and went ahead and decided to also candle the ones that go into lock down on Fri. One of the eggs that go into lock down Fri had a split air cell, and I was going to toss it, but as I was watching it there was movement inside. I watched for a while, and saw movement several times. I know there is still 5/6 days left, but can this egg/chick make it?
