    I've noticed that in a few eggs over the months....if i see a bubble swirling around I just pitch it assuming the air cell has been violated somehow. Otherwise if they look a little odd I stll put them in the inc for three days and then candle again and see what's happening. [​IMG]

    Were they shipped eggs? It sounds like the air sac popped.

    Quote:Most likely, it means the air sac has ruptured, and the eggs wont hatch.

    if you're meaning airbubbles swirlling that's prob not a good sign for hatching.

    If you mean the yolk moving when you turn that's normal [​IMG]

    I think the yolk turning i dont see air bubbles. The whole thing turns.
