    I have some eggs that my hen kicked out of her nest about three feet down I have four of them that have successfully hatched when I put them in incubator I have two left that havnt hatched yet. I candled them to see if they are alive and part of it moved away from the egg when I was turning egg around. Is it alive anymore?

    What day of incubation are they on? I think past 24 days they either are dead or are too weak to pip.

    I believe around same time as others who hatched. There wer some at diff stages. Seeing part of it flop from inside of egg makes me wonder if the fall hurt it. Tore it from inside of egg

    Yes that is possible I can see where that would effect it from hatching. I would wait three days to see if it can still pip.
