    they may or may not hatch. When aircells detach, I usually try to incubate them big end up and candled them at day 18 - handling them as little as possible. I've had some hatch when the cell was stuck on the side. If its bubbly they probably won't hatch, but just moved to one side or sliding around, you have a shot
