Tomorrow my eggs are due to go into lockdown. I've one egg I've been keeping an eye on as it definitely has a detached air cell and just always looked a little "off" despite fact the embryo has continued to grow and move. I decided to give it a quick check tonight and saw that the chick has definitely grown since the day 14 peek and is still moving around, but concerning to me are the very many moving tiny air bubbles I can now see in there! Has anyone seen this before? Should I remove it from the incubator? Is this a build up of gas and it's going to blow on me??? Thoughts? Suggestions? Thanks in advance.

It's ruptured air cell. (The air cell kinda scrambles and makes smaller air bubbles.) Do you have a decent size air cell I'm hoping along with the smaller bubbles?? I would hatch this one up in a cutdown carton.

Thanks - no not much of an air cell unfortunately ... I will try to hatch it anyway, I was just worried the air bubbles could be a build up of gas percolating in there that could cause a disaster.
