    Sorry if this has been asked already but I have one egg that has something in it and is due to hatch tomorrow. I have read some threads on here where it talks about lockdown three days prior. Is it okay to candle it one more time and check to see if there is movement or anything or is it too risky at this point?

    I'd leave it alone.

    Should the egg be doing anything at this point like rolling/moving a bit or would that happen on hatch day? I don't know how all of you that incubate eggs do it. The waiting is torture. [​IMG]
