    So today is day 7 of my second try hatching. I just did the day 7 candle and one egg looked like it had 2 air pockets. Is this possible? Is it twins? Is it a dead egg? I marked both pockets and will recheck at day 14. But any advice on what it could be?

    The air pocket/cell could have ruptured, resulting in two separate bubbles. Did either of the air pockets move when you rotated the egg? For now, I would just keep an eye on the egg; hopefully, nothing is seriously wrong and it will hatch.
