    I got 17 blue and black cochin eggs today, and I was candling them to check the air cells, and I was candling this one egg and I noticed it had a huge air cell and it was black and then I noticed something that looked like a beak in the air cell! This can't be a chick...can it?!?!?! But I made a little hole in the air cell and it is a chick! I put it in the incubator just in case, do you think the little baby could have made the trip?

    Made the trip from where? Did you buy these as hatching eggs and have them shipped?

    Actually it was a swap I made with someone on here, I did contact them and they are very sorry and don't even know how it happened themselves. I just hope it makes it!​
