Just went into lock down and I noticed one of the eggs had an air cell on the side of the egg..There is still movement in the egg! Should I be concerned about its ability to hatch?

I'm interested in the answer to this quesiton too. I have a EE that is pretty consistent with laying an egg that has the air cell on the side. I don't plan on ever attempting to hatch them, but if I did accidentally put one in the incubator, would it hatch?

Toss on a blanket and don't open or peek. As soon as the power is on, be ready to uncover. A couple hours won't do too much harm if you are in a reasonably warm place.

Or if you can drive somewhere that has power, just plug in. Or use an inverter at least the wattage of your incubator and run it from your car's power.

Hope they are fine and yea it's fine, there is no heat being pushed in so it doesn't need to be circulated
