Help with air cell

    Hello everyone,
    I just candled my eggs this morning and I noticed one of them had a pointed air cell. I've never seen this before and just want to make sure everything's okay with it, and what it is. I drew a picture of what it looks like down below.

    Any clues?

    Thanks,

    P.S

    The last time I remember this was a forum for help with incubation and egg hatching... What happened??? I think we should get back onto the subject. :/

    Yeah that's what I thought to, but internally piped is the opposite direction. Also to mention right after that bump there is a tiny bump the oppsite way in the air cell. I'm 98% positive it's not a beak.

    No I don't think so, it looks like it's the air cell itself.
