    I candled my eggs before lock down they all looked normal, had one power outage but temp did not fall below 30 degrees View attachment 1397909 humidity at 20180521_085326.jpg 20180521_085541.jpg 65%, blunt end air cell normal, but there is a clear area on the pointy end, the chick is alive and moving inside. please help, is this chick going to be ok.

    just to make sure... this is a chicken egg right?

    I have never come across this, at least not with such a large space. I have had a few that had a light space where there was liquid in the pointy end a few days before hatching started. your eggs could be a few days behind.
