    ok so heres some pics of the last egg, any thoughts? Its day 25, I see no movement or internal pip & no sound.
    I'm going into panick mode as i'm not good with mortality or
    deformities

    I would pop into the air cell if I were you, just enough to see if you can see a beak or any movement and then go from there.

    Try floating it in a glass of warm water to see if there is any movement, if not then I would say it is no good. This is called water candling if you want to research it.

    What kind of egg are we dealing with? Some breeds tend to incubate a bit long.
