Today is day 23. The eggs taht are not moving around or pipping by now are probably duds correct?
Candle for movement or water test before discard or opening them. Sometimes surprises happen.
You take a cup or small container, fill it with water between 100 and 102 degrees. Take the egg and put it gently in the water.
A live chick will move within a minute or so, the water making the movement visible as a small wave/bob. Really weak chicks may take a bit longer. Dead chicks, no movement.
Don't let a child see you do it, you'll end up with drowned eggs at some point.
more like a bopper in the water, for fishing. Joy, how many did you hatch??? and how many are left??? hello walkswithdogs...go do something creative, like build your coops/runs....
4 out of 15 Wheaton Blues hatched...... and others.... but I am concerned about the 9 Wheaton eggs just sitting there on day 23
