    To cut very long story short is this egg still viable do you think? A smaller hole appeared 2 days ago & just now as nothing had happened I made in tiny bit bigger. I looks fully developed & there's no blood but also there's no movement in the beak & it's not responding in any way... Should I leave it or help it out or just bury it? ps there's no bad smell coming from it....!

    sorry.no movement for 2 days. Bury it. these things happen. That's why hens lay multiple eggs.
    Best,

    I am sorry for your loss. It's hard when they just can't quite make the hatch. [​IMG]
    Warm Regards,
