    I just candled 16 eggs and the air cells in 2 of them looked like they were saddle shaped or like a double together.

    Yes, they were shipped. This just showed up on day 18. [​IMG] The candling on day 7 and day 14 were normal. [​IMG]

    Is it possible, from what you can see, the chick has already busted into the air cell?

    I sorry tonight is starting of day 18 and they will go into another bator Im going to recheck again real good but the chick was alive in both eggs, also I have some notes on each egg since before they went into the bator. Im going to look at, I think one had a shatter type fracture before I placed them in the bator I'll update tonight. No I dont think they have broken through the air cell.
