    Okay so I have no pips yet but when i candle i see movement. On one the air sac is twice the size and is oddly shaped it is going up the egg. I have them tilted right but I dont know. Any suggestions I am going to see if they pip tommarow.

    That air sac change means a chick/poult/duck is probably about to enter the air cell. Usually it means the eggs are running long. Usually they pip inside 24 hours once you see that change.
