    I had moving happy dancing eggs for the last three days now, and suddenly they have stopped... I have seen a few wiggles here and there from one of them, but I'm so upset! [​IMG] I will leave them a few more days, but I'm so dissapointed, I just knew they were ready to hatch by all their dancing!

    When I had my broody, my hen was clucking to her eggs on day 20 then it all stopped.

    One had developed but didn't make it out of the shell.

    I hope you get some pips soon.

    Don't give up. The rocking stops because they need longer naps when the actual breaking out occurs. I have given up taking the rocking and rolling as an indicator. I can't hear as well as I once could and the noise of the fan also buffers the peep so I don't let not hearing peeping bother me either. If you temps were right, you humidity was in the ballpark and your eggs were fertile, they will hatch.
