    I think I would take the pipped ones and turn them a bit so that the pip is at the top or side so that the fluid doesn't pool at the bottom where they need to breath. My pips are usually on the side of the egg

    I think it may be gone. I would try peeling the shell away a little...NOT the membrane tho. Just the shell to see if you can tell if it's still alive or not. I hope it's ok!

    :| I peeled the shell back no blood i can't tell it looks big inside the egg, is it posible it is to big for its own shell? I will check on the egg in a few hours to see if it moved or started to make progress.Not sure what else to do.[​IMG]

    Does it move when you touch it? If it is still alive it should.

    :(No it did not move at all i even tried removeing more of the shell to make sure nothing, it look like it could not get through the membrane it seemed really tough it makes me worried that the others won't make it due to tough membranes, also it completly fill the eye there was no yolk sac left

    If it was ready to hatch there wouldn't be a yolk sack left. When they pip they pip into the aircell first and expand into it too.
