    Candeling my eggs today I know not day 10 but I had time today lol. I notice one of my chicks didn't appear to be floating rather it was stationary in the egg when I moved it. Defiantly alive as I could visualize its heart beating. Anyone else know if the chick is stuck or is that something seen before? I have a styrofoam hatcher forced air incubator with automatic turner keeping the humidity around 40 ( good hate rate for me at that humidity).

    Normal to see one on only one side of the egg early on. Check again in a few days and it should be more full. Good luck!
