    ok i have past due eggs i decided to candle and no movement so i decided to see what they looked like before i tossed htem and the first egg was a cute but dead so i cracked the second carefully and then i saw MOVEMENT i screamed eeeek lol i rushed it back to the bator with the egg and all the stuff that came out with it can it make it or will it die?! i cracked the third and it looked milkie inside but when the chicks body came out it started kicking like it was running! so i rushed that chick to the bator too.

    honestly what are the chances of sirvival?
    and is there supposed to be yolk still close to the belly???there were small sacks of yellow veiny yolk i never touched it i just slid it back in the bator too

    Chances are not to great if its bleeding. It can still absorb the yolk but will have to wait and see. was it bleeding? They must not be ready to hatch yet if they hadn't finsih absorbing the yolk.

    your temps must have been low during incubation that can make them late to hatch. I wouldn't try to help anymore out, they may be ok. Hope they are!

    Yes your therm. Might be off and if it is then they might take a few more days. Just a few degrees off and it really makes a difference.

    Don't feel bad, after you get a digital thermometer from walmart with a humidity guage, try again. IMy incubator doesn't even have a thermostate its a cooler, heating pad, and popouri pot, took me forever to get temp steady, so know the feeling.
