    are they shipped eggs? if so this could be a busted air sac from shipping I have had no luck growing chicks from broken air sacs from shipped eggs.

    I am not sure what you mean by wobbly? I had one shipped egg with an air sack that was elongated down one side of the egg and it hatched. I would leave them in the incubator and see what happens. What day are you on in your incubation?

    I've had shipped eggs with broken air cells hatch... If the cells are at the big end, put it in an egg carton (you can cut 4 cups off the carton so it's stabilized or to put more in) and if the air cell is on the side, lay the egg down on it's side.. When you go into lockdown, make sure that no matter where the air cell is, the air cell itself is pointing UP!

    Greetings, Day 13, you can see the chick inside. If you see the shaded area and the veins above that you have a chick. I'ed ask the chick abour the air cell when it dries off. Good luck.
