    Don't worry about your air cells, if they are where they are supposed to be that's a good thing! Shipping can be really rough on them.

    If you have veins, you have babies! [​IMG] Congratulations, hope you have a great hatch! [​IMG]

    Quote:X2 I agree with the other posts, don't worry about the air cells. Shipped eggs can be more difficult to hatch as they aren't handled to carefully.
