    I have some polish eggs in the incubator. When I candled them today the air cells are huge and one runs down the side of the eggs a little. They did not seem this bad the last time I candled them. Will they be fine or do I need to do something. I am new to this and have not a clue what to due.
    Thanks

    i have got one like that, the air cell was going down the side, but it grew and is supposed to be hatching tonight. I got these eggs shipped though. So i was thinking it was because of the shipping.

    yeah so were mine. When I candled it today I saw it move. Hopefully it will hatch for you. Good luck with it and let me know how it goes!!
