    Hatching duck eggs. Should an air cell be visible on day 1? When I candle on day 1, the yolk looks like it is in the rounded end and no air cell seen. Is that ok or bad egg. [​IMG]
    Thanks

    If it was a really fresh egg (newly laid) then sometimes you really don't see an obvious air cell yet.
