    i float tested my eggs day21 and seen movement so i put em right back in.
    as of tonight i cant see movement but they were moving after they went back in,.... i gently rocked them and they were moving
    nothing since.8+ hrs no external pips but would an internal pip kill a chick if it were float tested?

    Probably not. They may just be having trouble hatching due to something else.
