    Okay. Today is day 9... I candled. I have 15... Many of the chicks looks to be Partying in their egg, moving around like really good... however, there were 2-3 eggs where the embryo was mellow or not moving. I wonder if they died. :( how can you tell if they are either sleeping or dyed? i taped on it a few times and one didn't respond. :( it looked like it was scrambled up in there. :( but i don't know.

    anyone?

    cant really tell. Wait another week. If no progression in development occurs then it died.

    i can see through all the eggs clearly except for one. it's like dark but i can see the embryo move ever so slightly. the egg is a big one. not sure if it is a twin egg or the chick just developed bigger?

    should i worry?

    Seriously you need to stop candling. Haha. You're going to go crazy. Just let it go.
