    Is this egg a goner?

    hi. it’s day 24 (out of 21) and 5 of 7 bantam silkies hatched right on time. one of them is a yolker because he stood straight up in the water. this one seemed to be at an angle. am i just hopeful when i see it this way, or could the chick still be alive? *the orange line shows where the air sac is
