    Just got my new eggs in the mail-RR,Jersey Giants and Salmon F's well a few when I unwrapped them from tripple bubble wrap made a wierd noise as if something was in there. Candled as good as I could being that these are darker eggs and they are clear. So does this mean the air pockets are broken? That is my only guess.

    They would not make a noise if the air cells were broken. The only time a egg should make noise is if it has a chick ready to hatch or if it is totally liquid rotton and shaken! Could the bubble wrap have been sticking to the egg and when you peeled it off made a noise?
