    Here is a little tid bit about shipped eggs. You can take it for what it's worth but i am going to try it. I have nothing to loose because the eggs i got have air cell damage.

    Hey Rod the air cell trick worked like a charm. I didnt turn them for
    the first seven days and then just kind of moved the top of the egg
    left one time and then right the next time. Hatched out 6 out of 12
    which I thought was great for eggs that had air cells that moved all
    over the place inside the egg. Thanks!

    I knew it would work as I've done it here numerous times over the years but some people don't believe it. If they're really damaged. I'll leave them set in the upright position for 10 to 12 days. By that time the embryo is tougher and can take more stress. Glad it worked for you. Rod
