You can play hatching chick chirp videos to the egg--they actually need communication and if they hear chirping chicks outside their shell--firstly, you may hear it chirp back once it's pipped the membrane (first pip is thru the membrane into the fat ends to get air from the aircell) second pip is into the shell, after a lot of resting periods. Once you hear chirping, you can chirp back.

From my experience, then is just wait--i know how painful it is to sit and watch/wait. It's important to wait for at least first membrane pip because the membrane still has blood vessels sending blood to the chick. The last hours before hatch, the chicks body is absorbing the yolk from the yolk sac and blood from the vessels. So, the shell needs to stay in tact to protect everything on the inside.

When the chick pips the membrane, it's got energy from the absorbing yolk and blood (both of which are still being absorbed). The first movements triggered are in the neck (muscles twitch). The head is actually tucked under the left wing, and the pip usually occurs along the air cell line, from the armpit area. So, if you look closely along the air cell line... And, what's your humidity? It should be at 75% now. Can you upload a picture of your egg in the incubator?

here's how I set, drawing a line around the air cell on days 1, 7, 10, 14, 18. To track air cell shrinkage and then to know where to watch on the egg.

okayy..so basically i just candled it and saw that the chick has almost covered the entire egg.except the air cell...when i was tapping it..it was moving a bit inside the gg..so i guess its alive and okay..i added some warm water in the tray to compensate the humidity loss....

You dont need to worry much becuase chicks, like one of mine sometimes can even hatch on day 24 so you don’t need much to worry about
