    So i got a good deal on ccl (crest cream legbar) eggs. Most i know look good as i see air pockets (turns out having tortises lay eggs as a kid taught me alot about eggs) anyways there are 3 ccl eggs that are in question. I dont see air pockets. And then the guy gave me an olive egger from a ccl mixed with a copper maran im curious on that one as i see a crack/chip or dent or whatever you want to call it. Do i bother with the ones i dont see air pockets in? What about the olive egger? You can see the chip or whatever. I didnt ask how old the eggs were he was set to put 500 eggs in on monday. In my opinion n tell me if im wrong #2 and #3 are good as they have air pockets. The others arent. And do i put the chiped egg in or is it pointless

    In freshly laid eggs you sometimes cannot see the air pockets when candling. Have you been incubating these yet? You can't tell if an egg is fertile by candling it if you haven't been incubating it for at least a few days first.
