clicks???? That could indicate drowning? :welcome
if you think you need to intervene, heres some instructions how to intervene......
Take the egg candle it if there is a little movement, take off a TINY bit of the shell NOT the membrane...if every thing looks good.....take off some outer membrane keep wetting this bit with warm water....leave for an hour but keep wetting membrane....take off inner membrane (BE VERY CAREFUL!!!) if there is some blood leave it alone! If there is a hole in the shell, the outer membrane and the inner membrane the baby has air leave her but keep wetting (not on her bill) ps she could just be taking her time! xx keep me VERY posted please! :thumbsup
