    okay so i was just canldling my eggs and in 1 of the eggs the air sack is darker then normal with a white normal color circle in it. the circle doesnt looks seperate everything looks normal with it except the whiter part. it also has a hair like crack in that area but so far that hasnt stopped it from developing correctly. all my others have a normal white air sack. any ideas?
    im getting worried it might blow up and mess up my other 3 eggs....
    any ideas would be sooo welcome!!

    How far along are your eggs?
    Do you see any movement in this egg?

    If the chick is moving in the egg with the weird air cell, it isn't at risk of going rotten yet.
    I wonder if the membrane is ruptured some how, where these shipped eggs?

    Maybe some one will see this post and know exactly what it is that you are seeing.
    The egg at this point is definitely not at risk of blowing up and harming the other eggs.
    You're so close to hatching I would just wait and see.
    Good luck on your hatch,
    Carolyn
