are you saying this is day 24? I don't see an internal pip. Is it internally pipped? Do you have other eggs that were in this batch that have hatched?

Yup. My Silkie was laying on them. That's the last batch she gets. Out of two batches of eggs she's now 1 for 15 (it ended up being a rooster). Yesterday I took them away, candled, and stuck in the incubator. What do I do about this one? It is the only one living out of this batch. Will it die?
