So I went to check on one of my broodys and at first I noticed this egg appeared to be cracked. I thought she killed it by sitting on it so I took it from her and put it on the ground. A few minutes later I went to look at it because clearly something was in it. I nudged it gently and noticed it was still moving and breathing. I placed it back under the broody. I’ve been checking on it about every hour. I do not see any pipping through the membrane though. Today is around the 21 day marker(give or take a day or two). When I checked on it just now it appears to still be alive but it’s not moving much. Has anyone seen anything like this before?? Help this is our first one that has made it this far.

If it has not internally pipped, tape up the hole to keep the moisture in, then take the tape off immediately after in internally pips.

It did not make it... I went back out to check it and ants were covering it. 😞 and it was no longer breathing. I opened it and I think it had another day or so but cannot be sure. It was almost there. 🥺.
