I received 24 eggs 8 days ago, they have been in the bator for a week now. I candled this morning, and threw out 3 eggs (all 3 were clear and 2 of the 3 had small cracks that I hadn't noticed before) There were some eggs that had noticeable veins, but the air cell wasn't attached to the top. It floated around all over the egg as I turned it. I put these eggs back in the bator, but will they hatch? They are in egg cartons, so the air cell is at the top of the egg anyway. I assume this is due to them being shipped, I have another dozen of my own eggs in with the shipped eggs, and only one of them was clear and the air cells were perfectly fine. So should I throw the bad air-cell eggs out or will they hatch? Thanks.

I'd hold on to the weird air cell eggs.
They probably will be fine, from what folks have told me.
I got some like that now and I just took them out the turner today (18) and the babies are developing and moving just like the other eggs.
I have mine in a carton now, too.
