to pip or not to pip?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Sorry am a bit confused by the site. I was looking for some advice with my silke eggs. It's day 24. 2 eggs have hatched but the final egg is showing no signs. I followed your thread, candled but no signs of internal pipping or movement, no chirping. Float tested and it floats perfectly around the air sac. But what do I do now? Do I start pipping?

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Hi welcome-byc.gif

Glad you could join the flock! Personally for me at 24 days and with no sign of life from candling I would say the chick is dead in shell. That's just my opinion and what I would think if it were my own egg. If you want to though you could start a pip just to see what is going in there. Here is an article that should help you ~ http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/step-by-step-guide-to-assisted-hatching

Fingers crossed I am wrong and you just have a late hatcher fl.gif

Wishing you the very best of luck and enjoy BYC frow.gif

Unless your incubator was running cooler than required, or you are doing a staggered hatch, 24 days is too long for them to hatch.  I would think the last chick died in the shell.
