    That's no good… Candle the eggs and check what's going on with the air cells. Then put them somewhere with their fat ends up for 24 hours and candle again. Depending on how they were handled during shipping, how old they are and how long they were like that, they may or may not have air cell issues. Candling will tell. Good luck!
