    Hi,this is my first time hatching eggs! I have 6 miniature white silkie eggs.I have candled them and I think 3 have something in there! They were moving around a little bit last week,since then nothing.This is day 25,should I give up or do you think there is still a chance they could still hatch? Any advice please!!

    Ugh! Day 25 is awfully long to just be over due! Try candling them one more time. But I think they are done! I'm sorry![​IMG]

    Um, if you have the heart you might try opening one of them. When I have eggs that do not hatch I like to know exactly what/when something went wrong. Some people do not do this, but for me it offers some sort of explanation.

    So Sorry about your loss...[​IMG]
