day 24 no signs of movement

post #1 of 3
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?

Hope I'm wrong. But day 24 with no movement. No pip. I would say chick has passed.

Maybe give it a couple more days if nothing changes
Toss it.

Congrats one the ones that hatched.

At day 24 with no pipping, no movement and the other eggs having hatched. it is very unlikely that the chick is still alive. Any egg with a decent air cell will float. The key is if they float AND wiggle independently. Congrats on the two hatchers, sorry on the last one.
