    I candle the eggs and the air cell is oddly shaped on som and the air cell is in the middle of the egg on others. There is still development in the egg but will they die soon?will they be deformed?

    Yes, it can detatch. They are usually not suitable for incubation, but some folks say they have been able to hatch perfectly good chicks from them. I would try , but figure that not much will come of them.
