    In New Zealand just entered spring.
    I had 4 of 5 fertile eggs hatch
    First hatched a good 72hours ago last one hatch 24hours ago.
    How much longer should I leave with her or is time to attempt help (It's possible a silkie cross)

    I candled egg, was all slushy with no specific air sack just a moving bubble
    So opened it, its only a tiny embryo about 1/2tsp size so I'm glad I checked and didn't leave poor mumma sitting on it.
