    Dead embryos are pretty stationary so I'd say yours are doing just what they are supposed to be doing which is growing.

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan [​IMG]

    You do not nescessarily see movement with live chicks, so don't discard the egg if you don't see it moving. I rarely candle more than very briefly to avoid disturbing the developing embryo, so usually check only for development and not movement. You might look at the Incubation and Hatching thread for someone else incubating at the same time, it can be very comforting to talk to others while incubating.

    I'm no expert, but that sounds normal to me.
