    We have 2 bantam eggs at 23/24 days and nothing is happening , we made the incubator ourselves but have kept good temp/humidity throughout with some fluctuations when we opened it to turn the eggs. We stopped turning them as recommended on day 18/19 but decided to candle them this morning to see if we could see any movement at all. All we can see is the darkness of the chicks and the air sac - no movement. Both have a small veiny patch.

    We are just asking for some advice - we have read a lot about not breaking the shells ourselves etc but it seems quite late in the game now.

    Any advice appreciated.
