    Do the float test no air cells is not good, did you sniff them?

    are you candling them from the fat end of the egg? no air cell? you have me stumped.....

    all I can say is try this..... I am sorry, really am stumped with the 0 air cell at that stage......unless your not candling correct

    but read it first and know what your doing before you start Float Testing, Checking Egg Viability For Late Or Overdue Hatching
