I'm on day 16/17 of incubation for my chicken eggs. I haven't candled them in a week, but I did today and there is absolutely no movement...is this normal? The chicks are there and growing..but I see no movement

How bright the light is and if your candling in dark will vary greatly on what can be seen. I rarely see movement but can feel it when the egg is in my hand day 17/18 final candle. If they are growing still then rest assure they are still alive.

Everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it.

You do not always see movement. Good luck with your hatch!
