Sounds like it pipped a vein. I guess we know why it hasn't progressed. He's still not ready.  ;)

I candle and rewet sponges and it doesn't affect my temps that greatly and definitely not long enough and I had an old styro.

Yes but Amy that's not too u sweetheart YOU move with confidence&awareness of time. You know exactly what you are doing so don't apply to u silly. Plus it takes I no time to do it.
Example of you stop watch me 4.2seconds to candle 4eggs(not drop),rotate,fill wells lid shut,only a 3degre temp can be for 4.2sec's
Hubby(ugh,i luv him) 9mins plus.
That's because he wants to candle each egg,clean up every drop of water spilled and pauses to yell at kids and dogs and etc.
See my point?

LOL.. Hey I managed to drop one of my silkie eggs day 17 during candling and for the first time, cracked up the backside ....so I'm not always that graceful.  However, a little clear tape and a lot of prayer, and it hatched just fine- and all by itself with no assist.

Do you guys think it will still hatch on its own? Should I check it in a few hours or just leave it till morning?
