    Leave it be a for a few more days. While ever you can see it moving thats a good thing. Don't open your incubator now. Just sit back and wait.

    Hi Lisa-b69! Yes it is very tempting to leave your eggs alone, but leave it for 3 more days, then you should probabaly step in! I would just take the shell off without touching the membrane. If it starts to bleed wipe the blood off and wait an hour. Then go back at it. Wiggling is veeeery good!!!!!!!!!! If it is peeping even better! Thanks and I really hope this helps!
