    Then I have hope that they will reattach in time. Or you could attempt manually turning them in egg cartons. I will tag you in a thread that had a how to on that a few pages back. Also it's full of good advice.

    GREAT Pics! I have given up on shipped eggs after two tries. First was 2 successful hatches out of 16 and the second 1 out of 39. I had lots of wonky air cells like you are showing. You've done a super job on preparing for these eggs and I wish you lots of luck[​IMG] I can't wait to see how they progress.

    Where did you get your eggs? I can't find anybody who ships eggs to Oregon that isn't asking an outragous price.

    I won them off ebay. Some of them are pretty pricey but not all of them. It depends on what you're looking for :)

    Update: It's day 10 and I candled the eggs again. Lost 3 more so I'm down to 23. Some of the air cells are still pretty wonky but they're still alive in there. I also have a cracked one. The shell is cracked pretty bad but the membrane is still intact. That one is alive too. I'm gonna give him a chance :)

    The ones I have left are blue and gold partridge brahmas, chocolate and molted/spangled Orpingtons and 1 maline. I'm trying not to get excited for the hatch but it's hard not to.
