I totally just tried doing an eggtopsy on a egg thats on its 25th day. pipped a small hole in the egg and heard it started moving around under the external membrane. I had done a water test on it on day 23 (it was jumping around) then again on day 25 and there was absoluely no movement @ all. so i decided this morning to let it sit for a day. and its done nothing... chances are its shrink wrapped it hasnt pipped internally that i can see. any ideas? i mean if its shrink wrapped would it be moving at all? its slowed down abunch and i can still see it making breathing movements Update!!! The chick pipped the external membrane and the shell... I cant believe it... I decided last night not to interfere and this afternoon when i got home from work he had completely turned around inside the shell and pipped. I had little hope and now im trying not to get my hopes up. it isnt shrink wrapped it acctually perfectly moist not over moist.
