    I was wondering if any one hatched anything out of an egg with a complete broken air cell? The reason I ask is that I have one. It has a totally broken air cell and there is something moving in there.

    how bad is the air cell and where is it positioned. I have had some that have malpositioned air cells still hatch. I have one going now that has the air cell on the wrong end. It is developing fine so far and I do know they can hatch that way.

    Good luck

    I have it upright with the pointy end down and it just reached 10 days. I move the egg and the air cell moves its completely detached.
