Three weeks ago, a nice lady sent me 4 bantam araucana eggs. Yes, I've already got bantam araucanas, but I want to increase my genetic diversity so I was happy to get them. When the eggs arrived, they ALL had badly scrambled air cells. Tiny little bubbles of air floating loose inside the shells. I let them rest for 24 hours, set them in the bator, and crossed my fingers. On Friday, I candled them. 1 had no development (it also appears to have a tiny pinhole in the shell). 3 had something nice and dark filling the shells. The air cells still looked odd -- one looked like it had TWO air cells -- but somebody was in there. I set them in the hatcher. Today I have two hatched chicks so far. Still waiting on the third to get busy. So if you receive eggs with scrambled air cells, don't give up hope!
