    Ok I need some advice... I feel really bad.

    I acquired 6 eggs from a neighbor of mine who has roosters. My silkie "Bunny" wants to be a mommy. On August 27th we started the process and on the 16th of September we had 3 eggs hatch (21 days). The other three had no acitlity and the shells were to solid and dark to candle. Today I decided it was past time so I opened each egg. the first one was just a yolk but the other two had a chick formed in them. No movement when I opened them. Would they have hatched in the next couple of days or did I just kill them?

    If they weren't moving I would say they had already died. Was there any blood?

    Not really, just a bit of fluid.
