    I had some eggs that were rocking quite a lot yesterday, and today, they had stopped. I thought they were dead so i candled them, and there was slight movement in the egg, but today it should hatch and it hasnt pipped through the air sac yet, Could this be because the chicken is is imbred? Please help me [​IMG]

    I would leave the eggs in the incubator and try to leave it alone. They are probably fine and will hatch soon. Just try to not open the incubator to keep the humidity and temperatures as stable as possible. Good luck! [​IMG]
