    Today is lockdown. I have one egg left in the incubator out of four. It isn't moving...I don't think it is alive. My daughter insists that we give it a chance, so we will go into lockdown. I'm feeling really sad. My daughter actually spend $50.00 of her own money that she had saved to put toward this incubator. Poor kid..she is going to be so upset when that egg doesn't hatch. This stinks. [​IMG]

    Good luck! I hope yours hatch. My concern is there is no movement. I can see basically see the outline of the chick and the aircell and all that, but no movement. Let me know how you make out!

    I my very limited experience by the time the chicks got close to hatch time I hardly saw movement if any at all inside the egg. What I do see is the blood pumping through the vessels. Look for that instead of a black moving blob.

    Oh and you better find her a friend. She'll be really sad and noisy without a pal.'

    Good luck![​IMG]

    Quote:I want a friend for her, but I can't order any chicks (Silkies) online right now...all sold out until next year. [​IMG] Not sure what I'll do about that. I was checking that out the other day.

    Maybe it is alive after all! Who knows...wait and see I guess.
