Hi again, So going on from my last post, we’ve had 4 of 6 eggs hatching under mama hen, one chick hasn’t properly absorbed its yolk so its belly is swollen (on a seperate thread), and this wee one hasn’t hatched at all. Today is 23 days. I was certain I saw the start of a pip yesterday when the others were hatching. But the others yolk and gunk is now dried all over the egg so its sticky - is this a concern? Also, I cannot tell where the pip is now - theres feathers and dust etc stuck all over. I have tried candling it and see the point clear the rest is dark, but I cannot hear anything, nor see details as I’m not doing a great job at candling in semi darkness. Is it Possible its been unable to pip properly and die already? Mama hen has not kicked it out, and when i tried moving it she scurried it back under her. Would she know if its dead or alive?
