    My chick was rocking in its egg last to days. Tonight there is no movement. Does it stop moving before it breaks through to the air sac. We havent heard any peeps from it yet

    Yes, the last few hours leading up to hatching allow the chick to absorb the yolk and for the blood in the vessels in the egg to drain back to the chick's body. Your eggs will seems still compared to the days preceding. If you think about how quickly a chick develops and fills the space, it should allay your fears of something bad having happened. The chick's just "powering up" for the effort of hatching!
