    We have an egg that is overdue. We heard chirping lathe last two days but nothing now. Should I be concerned?

    Try the water test. What day is it? Take a bowl full of warm water, gently place the egg in there and wait until the water is still. If the egg is bobbing around or has any movement she could just be behind. If no movement, may have not made it :(

    I'm sorry to hear that, was that the only egg you had to hatch? You might want to visit the various "hatch-a-long threads," they provide a lot of answers to questions about hatching, when to assist, when to keep hands off etc. Very educational even if you are not hatching at the present time.
