    it has an intack air sac but then in the other area has what apears to be like a roundish area little smaller than a dime with little cirlces (bubbles amybe around it almost like when you would draw growing cells in science class? does anyone know what that means?

    I am by no means an expert, but that egg is clear... no development. I don't toss till day 14 or 18. But that eggs I would mark as ? At day 7 I can see veins and movement.

    Now the oddness thing.... is it the shell or the inside? I can't tell from pic. It kinda looks like a porous egg shell. Is it possible it is scrambled? If it does not develop by day 14 crack it open .... outside and see what is in there.

    I have had eggs that I thought were duds but left them in the incubator. I did mark them so i would know which ones they were. Surprisingly they did hatch.

    Here is a video of an egg at day 10. Click on image for video.
