    I had 5 eggs shaking and rolling on day 21. My first chick hatched and started pecking at the other eggs and bumping them around. I moved the chick out the incubator. It is now day 23 and no other eggs are moving. Is it possible that all the movement killed them or is this normal? Thanks!

    Nope, it's perfectly normal. That movement seems to actually help encourage the others to hatch if they're going to.
