    So I recently decided to get some duck eggs and hatch them. (Ancona) I put them in the incubator 3 days ago, and wanted to see if any growth happened (being scientific and excited) but when I looked at the duck eggs, the air cell, which usually stays in one spot ( in my experience) was rolling around the bottom of the egg. If I tilted the egg the bubble would move, only a little bit, but definitely moving. These eggs were shipped.

    I've had shipped eggs with bubbles that moved along the whole egg bottom to tip, if tilted enough, but these bubbles stay by the bottom of the eggs.

    I saw something that looked like growth in one egg, but it was very light and not super reliable. The bubble moves on all my duck eggs only a little, But not at all with the chicken eggs I'm incubating now with them
