    Its hard to tell from that picture. When in doubt, put it back and check again at day 10. You should definitely see something going on by then.

    agreed. if you're not doing staggered hatches and in desperate need of space in the incubator, unless you smell a bad egg don't toss anything out till they are going into the hatcher.
