    Oh and one of my eggs when i candled it i can see the eye and good veining and when i turned it around to look at it the air sac moved on the other side....i know this is not normal but as long as i don't move it anymore to candle it do you think it will be ok ? or will it die ?

    It has a detached air cell. I wouldn't handle it anymore until lockdown.

    Sending happy, healthy hatching vibes!

    It should be ok. Sometimes w/ shipped eggs you can get broken air cells and those pretty much won't develop. Also you can get an air cell which is loose. That sounds like what you might have. It should be ok. I have seen eggs w/ loose air cells do fine. Good luck.
