I have two lots of eggs in the incubator. Both lots came through the USPS.
After one week more than half the eggs candled clear. The air cell seems the be ruptured.
When you rotate the egg the air bubble move all around inside the shell.
Is this from shipping or something else?
The incubator was washed, bleached and aired out before use.

That is what is most commonly called a infertile egg.

Would the air cell break?
I thought it would still stay in the large end?

Duds in the incubator do that when they start to rot.

I've seen this in years past. Not just a local thing, but very wide spread through Canada and the States.
Weather, I suppose.

Thanks Reeves,
Thought for sure it had something to do with air travel and shipping.
