    Last time when we moved the eggs into the hatcher several the banty chicks actually peeped like crazy still inside their eggs. We laughed. They hatched the next day. No peeping this time so holding our breath.

    One peeped and partial zip so far, but it's not looking like a strong chick. Leaving it to survive and hatch or not. No sign of life from the rest of the eggs.

    You look like you've been on here a lot and are pretty experienced, but I'll go ahead and say anyway -- maybe you should go ahead and help that one hatch if it has been trying for a long time already.
