The egg in question is a standard sized EE egg on day 24 under broody. Bantam egg from same setting hatched Sat at noon. My chickens all run together so dad could possibly be a bantam. I picked up egg from under broody to check it out and as I slowly turned it I felt a "plop" within the egg. I was never able to candle this egg successfully but it doesn't smell bad. Could it be a bantam sized chick in a standard egg? Should I "help?" Thanks for any opinions.
