25 Days and no pip yet...


In the Brooder
May 12, 2020
So I added an egg to an incubator 25 days ago. I candled it yesterday and I can see a large shadow on one side, but it disappears when I turn the egg to the other side. There is an air sac. The egg is not pipped, nor do I hear or see any sign of movement.
How do I know that the egg stopped developing or that the chick is not alive? I heard of a water test but I'm not sure if I should do it...
So there's no possibility that it is alive...I feel bad about throwing it away :(
Guess I'll wait for my chicken to lay some new eggs now. Oh, just to explain: my chicken refuses to sit on any of her eggs, hence why I put them in an incubator.
Thank you for the replies!
