Hi, (a bit of background)
I recently found a clutch of eggs hidden in the yard (had undergone a few 40°c days and obviously started incubation outside) and brought them into the incubator. I lost a bit from the extreme temperatures however we’re nearing hatch day. yesterday I had a chicken cheeping from the egg (a few days early I believe) and I left it there. It has now been 24 hours and it no longer moves. Even when I try and water candle it. Has it passed away or is it just “storing” it’s energy. I don’t hear anything when I tap on the eggs either. Please let it be “deep” sleeping and not dead!!

Yep been checking every few hours... it doesn’t look healthy when I candle it either. Absolutely devastated :(
