    Hold on tight and leave the incubator closed. [​IMG] The small dent sounds like the chick has external pipped. It looks like a little outward circular mark in the egg shell. You might be able to hear the chick peeping too. Some come quickly after that, but 24 hours is not unheard of either. Is your humidity up in the incubator? Sounds like you will have a new chick soon. Best wishes!
