OK so this is my first hatch EVER!! and it has been killing me! this is day 21 and there was a pip this morning and it took all day for this little bugger to get here! Finally hatched @ about 8:30. #2 pipped at about 3PM and was just hatched @ about 9:30, so now I am worried about #3 that has not moved. I don't know if I should have done this but I took it out and tried to look for movement by candling I tried to be careful not to move it in any way as to change the position of the air sac? I see a chick in there and I am trying to find some but dont see any movement at all Aghhhhhh! hopefully I didn't kill it! any thing I can do and am I just being crazy, I know they come at there own pace but I figured there should be super visible movement if its hatch day??? Any thoughts?
