    The eggs I have seen with ruptured air sacks, it was pretty obvious. There were multiple air pockets and when you turned the egg it kind of ran all over. However, I had some eggs that ALL looked like the air sacs might be ruptured, put them in the bator and 5 of 6 embryos developed and are set too hatch tomorrow. I guess the air sacs were okay, but they sure looked "scrambled".
