Help! Egg is crumbling away and chick isn't ready! - Page 11

Hoping she is napping. I am hatching my first ever 26 fertile chickens eggs. Nerves are a wreck. But your postings have helped me a lot. Thanks.

Good luck with your hatch fl.gif It can be nerve wracking but it's also lots of fun and fantastic when you see the new life emerge from the egg.

I've just set 18 more eggs today so feeling a happy bunny now the incubator is back on again bun.gif

No sign of hatching from the third egg. I candled it but can't tell if it moves or I just think it does cause I want it to. How much longer should I give do you think before throwing it out? Don't wanna kill a baby, but it doesn't look good.
The other chicks are doing well with mom.

Good news! I swear I saw the third egg move when I candled it tonight. Can it even be possible that it's still alive? And if so, when is it gonna hatch?
And of course mom and baby pics smile.png

It could have been added to the nest after she started sitting. It would therefore be behind in development compared to your other eggs.

If you think there is still a chance with it keep going untill your sure big_smile.png

Love the pics, so awesome to see them progressing so well.  Maybe #3 is related to Rip Van Winkle, talking a long slumber. Lets hope so. Keep us posted and good luck. You are doing an awesome job with your feathered babies.

So I'm throwing out egg three tonight. Sad but it hasn't hatched.
On the bright side, I got this adorable pic of the chicks meeting daddy. <3
