    I have some eggs in the bator with disrupted aircells - day 16.
    How do I go about hatching them? Upright? On their sides as usual?
    I've hatched lots of eggs but none with disrupted aircells before.
    Thanks.

    The disrupted aircells are uneven looking. Clearly they are ruptured but it appears that the embryos are developing. Just wondering how they should be placed at hatch time.

    I have some with detached air cells that are in the turner. I figure it will be best to leave them upright. I don't want the air cell to move to the wrong spot, by laying them down.
