Hello. It's me, the pain, again. I really do research things before I ask here, but I get such conflicting results that I'm afraid not to ask people who know the correct answer. We have a mama peep sitting on seven eggs we candled last Saturday and found to have embryos. (I did another post about this at the time.) These are from three different hens and looked to be a various stages of development. Because of that, we have no way to know when we should expect them to hatch. The problem is that we expected to see a little rocking of at least some of the eggs, or hear some pecking, or something. There is no sound or movement at all, but we're really on the fence about candling them again. I've seen some people who say you can candle them right up to hatching, and I've seen others who say you shouldn't turn them or even move them in the last three days because it can kill the duckling. Since we don't know what the last three days should be, I'm afraid to even pick them up. Would it be safe to carefully pick them up and candle them tomorrow, or should we leave them alone for at least another week to see what happens? I also saw a few posts from people who use a stethoscope to check for a heartbeat. Would this be a better option so we don't have to move the eggs? Thanks so much again!
