    awww that stinks!!! I dont know what kind, sure was a white egg. It must have just died, it could have been bacteria or bator issues? let me check my notes in the other thread, I have sites listed to help figure out what went wrong... brb

    Is the yolk supposed to be broken like that at that point in development? (I have no idea), but I wonder if it was weak/ruptured membrane on the yolk from shipping?

    Ok thank you so much! I hope it wasn't bacteria..... Well the day I came home and candled it and decided it was dead the bator had been at 95F so that could've been an issue...... But the rest of the eggs were fine.... Even the standard egg that was developing a couple of inches away from it. That egg had absolutely no contact with any of the other eggs at all.... Help would be awesome!

    I finally figured out the flaws with my incubator, after loosing all my eggs but one, which I think is probably nt alive anymore. It's day 22 and there's no attempt to pip at all and my humidity has been dangerously low. If this egg doesn't make it, I'm going to try again soon and hopefully have a more successful hath, since ie figured out what went wrong. I fixed the humidity, but I'm hoping I'm not too late for my egg. I see no movement and I candled yesterday. Or the day before I don't remember. What are the chances my egg will hatch, do you think? I really dot want to she to eggtopsie, but i will tomorrow morning if nothing happens. Any advise would be great!

    aww Sparky that stinks! No movement and no internal pip? if a candle doesnt show an internal pip soon you should test it.......

    Float Testing, Checking Egg Viability For Late Or Overdue Hatching Give Eggs A Full 24 Hrs Overdue Before Float Testing. It Works On All Bird Eggs- Period! Takes Very Little Equipment Or Time To Do And Is Easy To Perform.

    No internal pip..... No movement.... No sounds... Should I candle again tonight to see if its tried while I was gone? If its dead then I'll try again. I'm not going to give up!!!!!!! I'll try the float test if it hasn't internally pipped
