    I was walking past the bator and bumped it hard. (My usual gracefulness) Eggs were rolling all over. These eggs were due on Thursday where one did hatch. The other three haven't. I heard one pip yesterday but nothing as of yet. Did I just kill my eggs? Should I do anything for them?

    Please let me know.

    Don't worry about it!

    I cart my incubator 20-30 mins to and from preschool 5 days a week and I just hatched 12 of 18 shipped eggs without a hitch. [​IMG]

    It didn't matter. I decided to intervene since they were on day 23, All three were dead. Two died quite some time ago and were severely underdeveloped. The third was fine except its right side was mishapen and had part of its bowel on the outside. My Bump didn't bother them at all.

    Thanks though for the help.
