    No question which of the 2 eggs is alive. Totally wiggling in the water where as the eggs I could tell from candling had quit was dead still(no pun intended) The problem now is I think this egg got moved over to the hatcher to early. We have a staggered hatch goign and I think my husband moved this one over a week early. It's been at high hatching humidity for 5 days and isn't supposed to hatch until Friday. Should I move it back to the lower humidity bator or not?

    If it's hatching then leave it. It would only hatch if it was ready [​IMG]
