    So this the 22nd day for this egg and the temp has been perfect along with the humidity I had been candling this egg every once in a while and seemed fine but when it didn't hatch I candled again and saw this. Alive or no? [​IMG]

    I'd give it at least a couple more days, if all has been well so far. Have you tried the float test?

    Search this site for assisted hatching by Sally Sunshine. Its got great instructions!

    Also if it ends up not making it, google for chicken embryo stages, there are a couple pages out there with wonderful day-by-day pics of the growth process that will show you exactly what day it died, if it comes to that, which I hope not!

    Good luck, keep us posted
