Can't say wether it's still viable or not, but it has no draw drown and no internal pip that can be seen, so It's not anywhere on the verge of hatching. If you see no movement at all and no veining anywhere, I would say it was a quitter.

Hatch day is going to be amazing!! You're going to love it!! It will all pay off when you see those ducklings make their grand entrance!
What breed is this? And how far past due? How were your temps throughout incubation? It doesn't look like it's ready to internally pip yet. I can't tell if it's still alive or not, though.
I don't need to or want to...lol I'm happy with my short trip shipped eggs. lol At least 12 of them are developican't be sure, if I get 14 out of 12 developing, and they make it all the way, I'll be over the moon. I am monitoring this darn incubator all the time worried it'll kill them...lol I'm running my humidity a little higher than usual because the silkies are so darn small that the air cells are growing fast!! And half of my spitz were already a little larger from the low humidity storage. So we are running above 40% most of the time. I'll bring it back down later if I must.
It is an americauna. It's a day past due and the temp has been an average of 100 degrees Fahrenheit
Do you have a forced air incubator or a still air?

LOL OF course I will be, you know me. lol Actually, I need pics every day for my candling page on my site, so I am stressing to get decent pics!
