If you candle them you can look at the air cell on the big end.

If they are detached or scrambled, the air cell will be badly misshapen, or possibly little bubbles floating around inside.

We have never succeeded with bubbles. We have been able to hatch misshapen.



Good luck,

I have hatched many chicks with the mis-shapen air cells. They kinda look real high in some areas
and real low in others. I don't candle until day eight at the earliest so not sure how
well you can see it early on.
