    One of the brown eggs in my incubator is tiltiing pointy-side up. I have them all laying on their sides in the incubator, but this one just started getting light on the pointy-side. It seems the air-sac migrated? Or it was bad to begin with, not sure. Should I toss it? it's a day 17 egg..

    Have you candled it? If it is good I would leave it be.

    Agree, if it is growing, leave it be and see what happens.

    Ok, candled it and it had nothing in it! It was slowly drying out. Weird... but at least not rotten and explosive. I tossed it. Time for the rest to go into lockdown.. I hope for a chirstmas chick!
