    Had 6 silkie easter egger cross eggs in the incubator and 5 have now hatched. The last egg is moving every once in a while but the chick still has not pipped through the shell. By my count tomorrow was hatch day but they all hatched today but one. How long before I should worry about the last egg?

    Especially if hatch day isnt until tomorrow.. Just as likely that these guys were early as it is the other is late

    All have now hatched. Just needed a little patience. 100% success. Cant wait to see how this cross turns out. From what I can tell so far the silkie traits are definitely dominant.
