    I have 7 duck eggs in my incubator, all have little babies swimming around inside, but I just realized, that they all have broken air sacs!will my babies still survive and hatch? I will die if this ends up being a problem!!!

    I set them 16 days ago. They seem ok. These were also shipped eggs, from florida.

    I have had eggs with detached cells that hatched perfectly. At day 12 if you have been turning them it's really to late. Next time don't turn the eggs for the first couple of days to give the air cells a chance to settle. Sometimes this works sometimes it doesn't. Happy Hatching.
