I am hatching 9 eggs right now and today is day 21. I believe most of the eggs have died due to having small air cells. There are 5 that seemed to be doing good, though and that I could see rocking. One of them hasn't internally pipped and I can no longer see movement from him so I don't know about that one anymore :( 3 of them have pipped internally and are chirping! :) The last one, though I am not sure about. I candled him and saw he had definitely pipped internally but I see absolutely no movement from him... Should I do anything ? Or do you think he may have just passed away for whatever reason ? Real Worried.
Internal Pip But No Movement !!

I cracked open the egg where I saw the beak and she was dead :( Fully developed and would have been a beautiful chicken. Almost all of the yolk was sucked up into her but I think I realized why she died.. there was a lot of green stuff in there. Attached to the yolk, the egg, and on her a little so I'm thinking a bad bacterial infection. I think when she started absorbing the yolk, it killed her... Must have not kept everything clean enough :(
