    Have had chicks hatch out of eggs that have had the air cell on the side with no problems. I know that chicks sometimes struggle to hatch from these eggs. All you can really do is watch and wait until hatch date. I would mark where the air cell is on the outside of the egg and if there is no sign of hatching after the others have popped out you may need to give this one a helping hand.
