    If this egg has stopped developing and died? It is day 16 and it looks nothing like the other 8 eggs that have gone all dark.
    There is no smell and no signs of seepage.

    Pictures shots below of the egg in question:

    Below is a picture of 1 of the other 8 with wiggle movement in it. These are dark where you can't see the top of the egg (large end) the clear area which I think is the air cell is on the bottom. Sure hope this doesn't affect the poor babies from hatching through.

    Ok I opened it up. It appears to died sometime in the first week?

    yeah it didnt make it. I see no veins at all. At 16 days should look like the others or at least very close to it
