Odd air cell

Hi,
I'm new to the forum, and new to hatching!
I have a couple of duck eggs in the mini incubator, which were posted to me. They're now on day 15, and I've seen steady development (from everything I've read) since day 3. I have noticed that one of the egg's air cells is an odd shape, and I read that it could be because of them being posted? I will post pics of both eggs. I have the humidity fluctuate between 45-50% and the temperature steady at 37.5 degrees.
Is it likely to be caused from postage, and will this egg be OK? I'm a complete newbie, so am just trying to follow best practice from all the info I have been reading.
Thanks in advance,
Liz

Hi & welcome to the forum Hollyelliott. :)

I don't know anything about ducks unfortunately but would guess that the abnormality might be due to the postal service.
Can't see your photos to look at the difference in the air cell.

If the chick is developing the same as the others I'd leave it & see if it hatches.

Thanks for your reply! I have hopefully altered the post to show the pics now.

Both seem to be developing the same, and lots of movement when I candle. It's fascinating watching the development!

Thanks again,

Liz

Oh no! I can see them on the post, so no idea why nobody else can see them?!
