    Is this a detached air sac? It is oddly to the side. This egg is greenish and hard to see inside

    They all look clear to me. This one is harder to tell. If the other side doesn't look like this and the air cell doesn't move when you move the egg, it was probably detatched and when it reattatched it did so on the side. If both sides of the egg look like this, then it's a saddle cell. If the air cell moves then it is still detatched.

    I've been staring at scrambled eggs this whole time [​IMG] I knew there was a problem with shipment from the beginning and I hope they send me more eggs! Because only 1 out of 11 grew and almost all the others were scrambled in the egg. I'll be calling Murray Mcmurray hatchery in the morning. I'm thankful I had put some of my own in there too bc otherwise it would just be 1 lonely chick- that's if it even hatches! [​IMG]
