It is day 22 or 23 - I really thought there was no hope left, althought BYC'ers kept telling me to hang in there. I bought a new gauge today to check temperature and humidity. I went ahead and opened up the incubator to put that in and decided to check one of the eggs as suggested by someone earlier. I tried to poke a tiny hole in one end to see if I could tell anything or hear anything. A larger piece of shell broke off and I could feel the poor thing moving in the shell...in my hand... What can I do? I put in back in the incubator but probably 1/3 of the side of the shell broke off in pieces. I can still see movement. Although I am sure I won't be able to forgive myself for this, the important thing now is to find out if I can help this poor little chicken in any way. Please help.
