    if you look at the pic.. on day 12 the area where the chick would be would be a little more than it shows for day 14.. so from what you said it looks ok to me

    Omg I just recounted it's only 11days in! Over half the egg is filled...there are two obvious heads... She has had a double fertilized egg before in the past but I cracked that one and ate it(no chick inside but you could see where two sperm entered on the yolk) will they make it?it's a medium sized egg...
    I watched them moving around when I candles
