My last egg hatched almost 48 hours ago ... day 23 is coming to a close. Toss the last egg?
Are you able to candle the last egg? I usually wait on the unhatched eggs if I am unsure (probably longer than I should) just so I am positive they will not hatch.
Edited to add:
I candled this morning gently and as quick as I could.
This was my first hatch so I'm no pro. I know on day 17 it was alive.
Today I saw a huge air sack(1/3) of the egg. I see a chick but doesn't appear to be moving. Very hard to tell since it's a very dark shelled egg. I don't see any blood stains or rings ... I just don't see any signs of life either.
While I'm here ... my first chick will not stop chirping ... unless a human mom has a hand in the brooder. The other chicks came later and are quiet and happy. The first one is just a constant alarm! Tips!?
It doesn't sound like it will be hatching, but I would wait at least one more day.
Thank you for replying... I'll give it til tomorrow.
